 THREE RESTAURANT CHAINS TO JOIN 1992 OHIO STATE FAIR
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Billy Inmon, general


manager of the Ohio State Fair, announced today that Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and KFC will all take part in the 1992 Ohio State Fair.
 "We're proud to have these three fine restaurants at this year's fair. They will each make a wonderful addition to what will be the greatest Ohio State Fair in recent history," Inmon said.
 In addition to operating restaurants at the fair, the three companies have also signed on as corporate sponsors of the 1992 Ohio State Fair.
 Taco Bell will sponsor the Parking Lot Shuttle, the Taco Bell Express. Pizza Hut will sponsor a Day at the Fair, as well as the Fairgrounds Coliseum, to be called the Pizza Hut Coliseum during the fair. KFC will sponsor the Free Kid's Park, an amusement area for young children.
 "With their sponsorship dollars, these three companies have replaced everything the state fair lost when McDonalds, Wendys and White Castle all pulled out of the fair," said Inmon.
 "This is a great opportunity for Pizza Hut to reach out to the citizens of Ohio. More than 3 million people will get a chance to try our products at the Ohio State Fair," said Cynthia Jackson, Pizza Hut Central Ohio market manager.
 "We're very excited about participating in one of the greatest traditions in the nation," said Jim Mizes, Taco Bell vice president.
 "The Ohio State Fair is one of the largest markets in the world. As the biggest restaurant chain specializing in fried chicken in the world, it's only fitting that we be part of the biggest state fair in the world," said Mike Neuerman, market manager of Kentucky Fried Chicken.
