Chain: KFC
Introduced: 1991

In the early '90s, Kentucky Fried Chicken re-branded as KFC and gave the United States precisely what it needed: a faster, simpler way to eat fried chicken. You couldn't really eat the Colonel's chicken on the go before, with all of those leftover leg, thigh, and wing bones. Popcorn Chicken is fried chicken for the hungry person traveling the land in their automobile. In fact, Popcorn Chicken is America.
