Slim Chickens is hatching major growth plans, inking over 120 development agreements in 2022 and bringing the total of units in development to over 900. The chain has added 25 locations this year, helping it to garner a $3,864,513 AUV, which is a 13.6% increase year-over-year,” Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens, said in a company press release.
“Coming out of 2021, we had big shoes to fill,” she said. “After having our best year to date, we were dedicated to honing in on not only bringing in new franchisees but also extending widespread support to operators currently within our franchise system. With support from the corporate team and adoring fans always looking to get their Slim Chickens fix, our franchisees are consistently seeing positive sales growth each week, and that momentum will not slow down. The next six months will bring in much more success for our franchisees, and we are ecstatic to see what they achieve ahead of 2023. We are continuing to connect with seasoned multi-unit operators to ensure our flavorful menu offerings are available to individuals in communities across the globe.”
Slim Chickens, which has over 170 locations, is seeking multi-unit franchising groups to help it continue to grow its growth.
