Slim Chickens Franchise Overview


As a 40+ unit Sonic franchisee, I wanted to expand my portfolio with a brand that had significant opportunity for development in attractive markets. Slim Chickens was a natural fit - the product, operations, marketing and leadership team has been nothing short of amazing. Diversifying with Slim Chickens has been incredibly rewarding. In fact, even though markets are selling out fast, I was able to just sign a new agreement to add 10 more Slim Chickens restaurants to my portfolio in Tennessee. I can't recommend the brand enough - and now's the time to get in!

Our group has developed Slim Chickens restaurants in North Dakota, and with all the breathtaking success of our first opening last year, we know we wanted to quickly expand our agreement with the brand. Once we found the real estate, we moved swiftly. The first restaurant we developed was a conversion and was the most successful opening in the brand's history, so we felt leveraging an existing site for our first Slim Chickens restaurant in Montana made sense, especially right now.

Franchise History

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.
