Slim Chickens announced its new restaurant opening at 27244 Wesley Chapel Blvd, Wesley Chapel, FL 33544. Spearheaded by the established multi-unit operating group, Florida Slims, this is their first restaurant opening.

The better-chicken brand has opened more than 245 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 1,150 locations in development, the brand’s momentum continues to prove its stronghold in its segment.

“We are looking forward to bringing our infamous cooked-to-order chicken tenders to more communities like Wesley Chapel,” says Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens. “Growing our loyal following in Florida is so exciting as we continue to see residents embrace our southern hospitality and inviting atmosphere. Operating groups like Florida Slims are prime examples of whom we seek as we continue to grow and we look forward to seeing our partnership continue to flourish.”
