KFC-USA CONVENTION WELCOMES PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH

 KFC-USA CONVENTION WELCOMES PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH
 NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- KFC Corporation today


welcomed President George Bush to its annual franchisee convention at the Opryland Hotel. President Bush addressed the 2,000 attendees for 30 minutes. KFC Corp. made no endorsement of any candidate in the upcoming election.
 President Bush began his address at approximately 9:35 a.m. CST. He said:
 "I've been to many towns and still have one burning question, 'Where the heck is Lake Edna?'" as the crowd roared its delight.
 "I heard you're experimenting with home delivery," he told the assembled KFC franchisees. "I wanted to give you my address: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I don't care what pundits say...Barbara and I are planning to be there until 1996."
 This week's KFC convention marks the 36th annual gathering of KFC franchisees, suppliers and other partners.
 "It has been an incredible privilege -- four days from an election -- to be active participants in the political process," said John Cranor, KFC president and chief executive officer. "It wouldn't be appropriate for KFC to endorse any candidate. We can, however, endorse the democratic process."
 KFC Corp, based in Louisville, Ky., is the world's largest and most popular chicken restaurant chain. Begun by Colonel Harland Sanders in 1939, KFC now has more than 8,600 restaurants in 63 countries. KFC Corp. is a subsidiary of publicly owned PepsiCo, Inc. (NYSE: PEP), in Purchase, N.Y.
