The KFC Sacred Recipe

The brand's top executive admitted his nerves were aflutter despite the tight security he lined up for the operation. Talk about "top secret". For more than 20 years, the recipe has been tucked away in a filing cabinet equipped with two combination locks in company headquarters. To reach the cabinet, the keepers of the recipe would first open up a vault and unlock three locks on a door that stood in front of the cabinet.
