Slim Chickens made brand history in 2021 by closing out the year with more signed development deals and openings than ever before.
The brand celebrated a number of milestones including its 150th store opening, entered 65 new markets with their development deals and had close to 40 openings. It also inked 350 signed agreements, bringing the total units in development to 750. On top of the rapid franchise growth, Slim Chickens also had a 25% positive comp store sales growth – in fact, the brand has had a 43.9% increase in comp store sales growth over the last four years.
“This has been Slim Chickens best year yet and we could not be prouder of the immense growth that we have experienced. It has truly been a team effort – from the dedication of our franchisees to providing a great customer experience to the corporate team continuing to find new ways to elevate the brand,” said Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens. “We are already slated to open over 60 locations in 2022, and can’t wait to see what else the new year holds for Slims.”
