The rapidly-growing better-chicken brand made 2021 a year to remember. From inking 350 signed agreements with nearly 40 openings, to entering several new markets, Slim Chickens growth momentum shows no signs of slowing down. The brand also experienced a 25% positive comp store sales growth.

To earn a place on the prestigious list, hundreds of submissions are reviewed by a panel of judges who select 75 brands and 25 executives for recognition.
