Arkansas-based Slim Chickens is opening in Wolverhampton’s Sainsbury’s Supermarket in the U.K., thanks to a partnership with the Boparan Restaurant Group, which owns several food production and restaurant businesses.
“Boparan Restaurant Group’s commitment to the Slim Chickens brand and its continuous effort in helping to grow our global footprint across the UK is huge for us,” Jackie Lobdell, VP of franchise development at Slim Chickens, said in a press release. “Chicken lovers can now further divulge in our warm and savory chicken paired with a variety of our house-made dipping sauces. I am always so gracious to have a team like the Boparan Restaurant Group and the Sainsbury team, who are as passionate about the brand’s growth into new communities like I am. Both groups are the classic example of the type of operating groups we look to connect with in our ongoing expansion efforts nationally as well as globally.”
The better-chicken brand has opened nearly 200 locations in the United States and United Kingdom.
