Slim Chickens Named to Fast Casual Top 100 “Movers & Shakers” List
May 28, 2021 // Franchising.com // FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Slim Chickens has clucked its way onto the Fast Casual Top 100 “Movers & Shakers” list, which highlights the industry’s most successful and resilient brands. The honorees were announced on May 19 in an executive report from Fast Casual.
“We are so honored to be ranked on the ‘Movers & Shakers’ list,” said Vice President of Franchise Development, Jackie Lobdell. “After all of the ups and downs that occurred in 2020, we are excited to be noticed for our resilience to continually grow Slim Chickens.”
This year’s list of Fast Casual Top 100 Movers & Shakers recognizes 75 brands and 25 executives who have embraced innovation throughout 2020. This annual list highlights brands and leaders for their contributions to the fast casual restaurant sector everyday across the country.
“The Top 100 is similar in that it’s not always looking for the most profitable or fastest-growing brands…. companies also make this list for their dedication to innovation, leadership and resilience,” says Cherryh Cansler, Fast Casual Vice President of Editorial. “That last quality, resilience, has never been more important than in this past year as the global pandemic forced companies to change everything from their operating models and menus to store layouts and labor plans, while still managing to take care of the people in their communities.”
With hundreds of thousands of happy customers, the brand has developed a strong devoted fanbase, also known as “Slimthusiasts,” helping to fuel demand for the hand-breaded, cooked-to-order tenders. Slim Chickens has distinguished itself in the “better chicken” segment 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 category, 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 the open and inviting layout of Slim Chickens restaurants, which speak to the hospitality mindset that anchors the brand.
