As KFC prepares to test a slightly more upmarket restaurant, the new establishment will eliminate bone-in chicken and the image of founder Col. Harland Sanders.

The quick service restaurant chain told the Associated Press it is opening a location called "KFC eleven" in August near its headquarters in Louisville, Ky. It will serve flatbreads with toppings, rice bowls, salads and only boneless chicken pieces of its original recipe.


The restaurant's exterior won't feature Sanders, whose likeness has long been front and center at traditional KFC locations. But the name of the test restaurant is a reference to the 11 herbs and spices Sanders used in the original recipe.
