    Slim Chickens announced  it has inked a deal for the entire state of Indiana and the Southeast region of Florida for a total of 60 locations. With over 750 locations in development, the brand’s momentum shows no signs of slowing down.

    “This is a huge moment for Slim Chickens,” adds Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens. “We are entering a new state and dramatically growing our presence in Florida, and doing it all with a strong operator who believes in our leadership team, has passion for the brand and has the skillset to run successful restaurants. We’re beyond excited to welcome Al to Slim Chickens, and look forward to watching him grow.” 

    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 industry 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.
