Watch out, Fabio — Colonel Sanders is coming for your crown.
That’s right. Colonel Harland Sanders, venerable mascot and spokesman for KFC, is the love interest in a just-released romance novella entitled Tender Wings of Desire. The novella is part of a marketing campaign for the fast-food chain’s $20 Fill-Up, which it hopes customers will purchase for dinner this Mother’s Day. According to KFC, the maternal-centric holiday is one of its best-selling days of the year, with locations often seeing a 40 percent boost in sales. The company claims to sell nearly 6.5 million pieces of chicken to 380,000 families on Mother’s Day.
