    Industry News | October 28, 2021

    Slim Chickens announced its new restaurant opening at the MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida. This location becomes Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s fifth location.

    The better-chicken brand has opened more than 145 locations across the United States and the United Kingdom, and is known for its passionate group of followers in the markets in which it operates. With more than 700 locations in development, the Slim Chickens’ momentum shows no signs of slowing down.

    “Continually connecting with groups like Army & Air Force Exchange Services brings us a deeper sense of purpose as a brand,” says Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens. “We are excited for Slims to become a staple gathering spot for everyone at the base to sit down and connect with one another while enjoying the tasty food we have to offer.”

    The brand prides itself on its cooked-to-order fresh food and strong devoted fanbase, also known as “Slimthusiasts.” Slim Chickens has distinguished itself in the “better chicken” segment by offering high-quality food and 17 house-made dipping sauces, allowing customers to enjoy a different flavor profile with each visit. Its menu is broader than many in the segment, offering chicken tenders, fresh salads, sandwiches, chicken and waffles, chicken wings and unique side items. Fans also resonate with the southern contemporary look and feel and open and inviting layout of Slim Chickens restaurants, which speak to the hospitality mindset that anchors the brand.

    The Slim Chickens franchise opportunity differentiates itself with prime markets available for multi-unit development, a passionate leadership team and world-class franchisee support system. As Slim Chickens expands, it is awarding franchise opportunities to qualified, experienced and passionate multi-unit groups looking to add a dynamic segment to their portfolio.
