Michigan residents will soon have a healthier solution to their chicken cravings as Slim Chickens signs a contract to bring 14 locations to the Great Lakes State. The new Slim Chickens is led by franchisee Nathan Finney of Finney Hospitality Group, a seasoned restaurant operator with multiple successful brands under his name throughout Indiana.
Slim Chickens is known for its cooked-to-order food, ensuring every order is fresh and clean. Over the years, Slim Chickens has established a trustworthy reputation among consumers with high-quality products and 17 house-made dipping sauces. Currently, the brand has over 240 existing locations across the United States and the UK, with an additional 1,150 locations in development. It’s safe to say that Slim Chickens’ southern goodness, friendly atmosphere, and diverse menu options are quickly becoming a trend.
After running various full-service restaurants, this will be Finney’s first time as a franchisee owner, diversifying FHG’s existing portfolio. The first Michigan Slim Chickens is anticipated to open in the spring or summer of 2024 in Grand Rapids, with at least one new location each year in other key markets including Lansing, Kalamazoo, and more.
