7006 Bellfort St. – Houston TX (built 1960s; also Yum-Yum Pit)
This commercial building, part of our East Bellfort Survey, used to be a Hart’s Kentucky Fried Chicken. Lawrence W. Hartzog, who opened 25 Hart’s KFC’s in the Houston area, was the last franchisee personally signed by Harland Sanders. In 1972 Hartzog opened his own chain, Hartz Fried Chicken, which he sold in 1989.
