They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but companies don't like it when you imitate their trademarks. Here is a collection of businesses which aren't quite named Kentucky Fried Chicken. Back when Colonel Sanders was an active part of promoting the firm, there used to be a fried chicken vendor at the Illinois State Fair called Kentucky Kernel. My mother-in-law used to insist on eating there every year, and every year she was disappointed. Interestingly, the brand name still survives as a breading mix, even tho the colonel whose coattails they ride has faded from the scene.
