Slim Chickens, a QSR opportunity in the ‘better chicken’ segment, has signed a 23-unit franchising deal with development group Florida Slims, to bring new locations to Tampa.
Florida Slims is comprised of Brian Lee, Charlie Blumberg, Jared Blair, Steven Etchen, Dan Haligas and Zach Ferrell. The first location from this deal is slated to open in the Wesley Chapel area in early 2022.
“When we were first introduced to the Slim Chickens brand, we were immediately sold on the concept – this brand is definitely special to be part of,” said Zach Ferrell, a member of Florida Slims, the investment group bringing the break-through brand to Tampa. “We’re excited to introduce members of the community to the brand. They will be ‘Slimthusiasts’ before you know it!”
Slim Chickens currently has more than 129 locations open across the U.S., Kuwait, and the U.K. It has a further 600 locations in development, and has a goal to open that number of sites within 10 years.
“Florida Slims is the perfect group to help us expand in Florida’s Gulf Coast. Their portfolio proves that they will do amazing work,” said Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens. “We are very excited to grow the Slim Chickens brand and break into fresh markets over the coming months.”
