Slim Chickens announced its new restaurant opening in Heaton Park, United Kingdom. Established multi-unit operators, Boparan Restaurant Group and their franchise partner JRK Restaurants, are at the forefront of the opening.
The better-chicken brand has opened more than 225 locations across the United States and the United Kingdom. The brand is known and loved for its hand-breaded, cooked-to-order tenders and passionate group of followers within the markets it operates. With more than 1,100 locations in development, the brand’s momentum continues to prove its stronghold in its segment.
“We are thrilled to extend our cooked-to-order chicken tenders and inviting atmosphere with the community of Heaton Park,” says Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens. “We are thankful for operating groups like Boparan Restaurant Group and JRK Restaurants for their compassion and dedication to sharing our southern hospitality and recipe with more communities overseas as we continue to expand.”
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, as well as the open and inviting layout of Slim Chickens restaurants, which speak to the hospitality mindset that anchors the brand.
