Q:

Why did Kentucky Fried Chicken Change its name to KFC?

A:

Kentucky Fried Chicken changed its name to "KFC" in 1991 because it planned to offer a more varied menu, it wanted to eliminate the unhealthy connotation of "fried" from its name and it wanted a shorter version of its name. Contrary to popular Internet rumors, the government didn't force KFC to take the word "chicken" out of its name.

However, a look at KFC's menu in 2014 shows that it is still serving just chicken.
