Slim Chickens announced its new restaurant opening at 2500 Funston Road, located in AAFES Exchange Shopping Center.
The better-chicken brand has opened more than 125 locations across the United States, Kuwait and the United Kingdom, and is known for its passionate group of followers in the markets that it has locations in. With more than 500 locations in development, the brand’s momentum shows no signs of slowing down.
“Fort Sam Houston is exactly the type of non-traditional location we’re looking for as we expand the brand into new markets. We have a great partnership with our Franchisee, AAFES, and are looking forward to bringing Slim’s to many more army and air force bases across the country,” says Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens.
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.
