Slim Chicken signs first UK franchise partner

Boparan Restaurant Group (BRG) has signed its first UK franchise partner, as the group seeks to “accelerate the growth” of its Slim Chickens restaurant brand.

BRG has entered into a franchise development agreement with JRK Restaurants which will allow the new partners to open five outlets across the south coast, over the next four years.

Seven Slim Chickens restaurants have opened in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff and Kent in the past two years.

Judd Williams, BRG’s franchise director, said the company is “delighted” to partner with JRK, in what is a “significant move for everyone associated with the Slim Chickens brand”.

He added: “As a result of this new signing, we have taken the first steps in our ambitious sub-franchise plans to fast track the roll out of Slim Chickens and introduce the brand to more towns and cities across the UK.”

Karim Kassam, chairman of JRK, said: “Slim Chickens is undoubtedly one of the most exciting brands in this country and we are pleased to partner with BRG to increase Slim’s presence across the UK.

“We already have a site in mind for the opening of the first franchised Slim Chickens outlet and expect to make an announcement within the next couple of weeks.”
