A LittleAbout Us
Winston Industries’ involvement with KFC began in 1967. Winston Shelton was part owner of Engineering Prototype Services, and did engineering work there while continuing to work full-time as a development engineer for General Electric. His company was hired by Kentucky Fried Chicken to make temperature measurements on chicken being fried in their home canners (known as pots). As he worked on the KFC project, Winston became intrigued by the problems faced by KFC in their kitchens.
