“With strong international expansion on the horizon, we are thrilled to share our breakthrough better-chicken brand to Kidderminster,” Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens, said in a company press release. “Operating groups like Boparan Restaurant Group and Sainsbury are a great example of the kind of partners we’re looking for overseas, and we’re eager to extend our southern comfort food with more people across the pond.”
The better-chicken brand has opened over 210 locations across the U.S. and U.K. The brand is renowned for its beloved high-quality, cook-to-order tenders and passionate group of followers within the markets it operates. It has more than 1,100 locations in development.
