Fact 1

The modern day orange carrot wasn’t cultivated until Dutch growers in the late 16th century took mutant strains of the purple carrot, including yellow and white carrots, and gradually developed them into the sweet, plump, orange variety we have today. Before this, pretty much all carrots were purple with mutated versions occasionally popping up including yellow and white carrots, among others.

 

 

Fact 2

KFC was the first quick-service restaurant chain to enter China in 1987, the first to bring franchising to China in 1992 and the first to open a drive-through in China in 2002. KFC continues to be the number one quick-service restaurant brand and the largest and fastest growing restaurant chain in mainland China today, with over 3,300 restaurants in more than 700 cities. Yum! opens nearly one new KFC every day in mainland China.
