Open a franchise with one of the fastest growing restaurant brands! 

Slim Chickens is a craveable and cool fast casual restaurant brand operating in the better chicken category. 

Slim Chickens first opened in the USA in 2003 with founders Tom Gordon and Greg Smart's commitment that guests can always expect fresh chicken tenders and wings, cooked to order.

Our culture is the soul of our brand. Slims is known for having the right combination of craveable food, a cool vibe, and that extra touch of Texan hospitality. Slim Chickens believes everyone, everywhere can appreciate honest food and a place to socialise with friends and neighbours.

Now with over 120 locations in the U.S, Middle East and UK and over 350 locations under development agreements, the eternally cool brand is an emerging national and international franchise, leading the “better chicken” segment.  Now we’re looking for the right people with an appetite for multiple units to help us bring our love of better chicken to new markets across Europe (focusing on France, Spain, Germany, Poland, Netherlands, Italy, Czech Republic); we are not currently recruiting in the UK.
