About Slim Chickens
Slim Chickens opened in 2003 in Fayetteville, Arkansas, with a focus on culinary excellence in a fast-casual setting. Guests can always expect fresh chicken tenders and wings cooked to order and served with handmade dipping sauces made from scratch. With more than 30 locations today and a fanatical following in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Tennessee, Louisiana and Nebraska, the eternally cool brand is an emerging national franchise leading the “better chicken” segment and intends to grow nationwide to a footprint of 600 restaurants over the next decade. Southern hospitality is not just for the South; everyone, everywhere can appreciate honest food and socializing with friends and neighbors.
Slim Chickens has been owned and operated by co-founders Greg Smart and Tom Gordon since the brand’s inception in 2002 and was founded with a goal of national expansion in mind. Once the brand had established and refined operations, product quality and brand personality as well as a cult-like following in its home state of Arkansas, it became available for franchising in 2014 to work toward the growth goal Smart and Gordon have set: 600 locations nationwide by 2025. Slim Chickens has always strived to provide the convenience and affordability of fast casual through a culinary experience with high quality food and cool atmosphere, and view this traditional southern hospitality approach as something not only to be enjoyed in Arkansas, but in communities from coast to coast. In its first year of franchising, Slim Chickens has already been joined by 8 franchise partners equally passionate about growing the Slim Chickens brand.
