When they opened I-75 the main amount of road traffic stopped using U S 25 that runs in front of that store. The Colonel and Claudia then moved up to Shelbyville KY and built a home and a restaurant where the Claudia Sanders Place is that you visited after my review. KFC is more than just another business in the louisville area. Now that it is part of "YUM" corp. based in the former KFC headquarters it remains major player in community events and charity work. I never saw The Colonel, but I did on several occasions see Mrs Sanders after the he died. She was always treated with the respect of visiting royalty where ever she traveled. She used a white Limo, with a couple of security people usually dressed in the white suits and the bow tie that was the trademeark of her husband.
The family represents a bygone day in american folk/pop history.
