Smalls Sliders® Signs Agreement to Develop Five Locations in West Texas

Experienced Restauranteurs Bolster Diverse Portfolio with Breakout Concept

November 14, 2023 // // TEXAS - Smalls Sliders is slidin’ thru The Lone Star State with its latest multi-unit agreement, bringing five Cans to West Texas. The trending cheeseburger slider concept inked the agreement with esteemed operating group ARJH Encore LP, LLC. This deal marks the brand’s fourth Texas agreement, now totaling 20+ Cans under development across the state.

ARJH Encore brings an extensive background in the franchising and restaurant industry. The group was first drawn to the unique Can concept that the Smalls Sliders brand offered as well as its streamlined menu. Boasting a diverse skillset, the group is confident in their ability to efficiently oversee operations, grasp market dynamics and tap into a well-established network to take the Smalls Sliders brand to new heights throughout West Texas. Targeting key cities such as Midland, Odessa, Abeline, Lubbock and Amarillo, the group aims to have its first Can open in late 2024, with the four additional locations to follow soon after.

“Seasoned operating groups like ARJH Encore and the wealth of knowledge that they bring to this venture are instrumental in driving the success of the Smalls Sliders brand,” said Maria Rivera, CEO of Smalls Sliders. “The Texas market has proven to be a resounding area of growth for our brand. I can’t wait to see all that the group accomplishes in with their locations as they join the brand at such an exciting time.”

Smalls Sliders opened its first restaurant in 2019 and has since grown to nine Cans throughout Louisiana, with more than 100 locations already in the development pipeline. The restaurant has already garnered industry recognition, with QSR magazine featuring the brand in its “40/40 List for 2022: America's Hottest Startup Fast Casuals” and its 2023 QSR 50 Contenders list. Other accolades include Nation’s Restaurant News naming the brand as one of the publication’s “Breakout Brands of 2023,” in addition to ranking on this year’s Entrepreneur magazine “Top New & Emerging Franchises” list.
