Slim Chickens announced its new restaurant opening at 1870 John Harden Dr in Jacksonville, Arkansas. Multi-unit operating group, Simply Slims, is spearheading the opening.
The better-chicken brand has opened more than 190 locations across the United States and in the United Kingdom, and is known for its passionate group of followers in the markets in which it operates. With more than 1,100 locations in development, the brand’s momentum continues to lead in its category.
“We’re so grateful for the dedication of the Simply Slims team in satisfying Jacksonville fans with this new location. Now, the Jacksonville community will be able to savor our delicious chicken paired with a variety of house-made dipping sauces, whether it’s to-go or dining in,” says Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens. “It’s an honor to have a team like Simply Slims, who are as passionate as we are about expanding Slim Chickens and further pushing the brand’s growth into new communities. The Simply Slims team is a prime example of the type of operating groups we are looking for in our ongoing expansion efforts nationwide.”

Its menu is broader than many in the segment, offering chicken tenders, fresh salads, sandwiches, chicken and waffles, chicken wings and unique side items.
