Smalls Sliders is officially slidin’ thru The Gateway to the West with its first multi-unit agreement, bringing eight Cans to St. Louis. The industry disrupting cheeseburger slider concept inked the agreement with esteemed operating group KR Partners, LLC. The eight-Can deal marks a milestone for the brand as it continues to target expansion efforts into the Midwest and across the country.
KR Partners brings an extensive background in the restaurant industry and real estate front to this latest business venture. Upon discovering the Smalls Sliders brand, the group was initially drawn to the simple yet delicious menu and the unique modular buildout that it offered. Recognizing the immense potential that the market offers, the group is confident in its ability to take the Smalls Sliders brand to new heights. Targeting surrounding cities such as Kirkwood, Clayton, Wentzville, St. Peters, Ellisville, Florissant and Bridgeton, the group aims to have its first Can open in late 2024.
“We’re off to a tremendous start in 2024, and this agreement marks an important landmark for Smalls Sliders as we continue expansion into the Midwestern markets,” says Maria Rivera, CEO of Smalls Sliders. “This is an exciting opportunity for our continued growth across the country and it’s rewarding to see groups like KR Partners, who possess an incredible entrepreneurial spirit, leading the charge.”
Smalls Sliders opened its first signature ‘Smorange’ colored Can in 2019. Since its inception, Smalls Sliders has disrupted the QSR industry with its stacked leadership team and robust development pipeline, furthering its rapid growth trajectory with more than 160 Cans open or under development.
