Sanders knew that he could not live on his pension, so he got behind the wheel and went to offer his recipe restaurant owners. Harland figured that if his prescription buy, he will receive five cents for each sold chicken. Origin restaurateur refused Sanders, as well as the second, third, and hundredth and thousandth. The first 1008 calls and phone calls were unsuccessful. However, he continued to visit the Harland and phoning restaurateurs across the country, sleeping in his car. He believed that the recipe will be recognized, and so I continued to attempt to sell it. 1009 attempt was successful, he answered "yes." After two years of daily attempts Harland was able to sign a contract with five restaurants. By 1963, his recipe for chicken sold already 600 restaurants, and the recipe itself has become associated with a network of Kentucky Fried Chicken, which is now well known in the CIS under the brand name Rostik.
