The American fast-casual concept which specialises in “premium”, cooked to order chicken, will open its next UK site in the Bluewater Shopping Centre.
BRG said the opening will bring an “authentic taste of Arkansas, USA and its renowned Southern US hospitality” to the south east of England.
The opening comes two years after the brand’s UK launch in London’s James Street. Following these two further London sites opened in Brunswick Centre and Soho, and Slim Chickens’ restaurants have also been established in Cardiff, Bristol and Birmingham.
The menu will feature the brand’s most “iconic” dishes including, hand-breaded, buttermilk marinated chicken tenders.
Richard Pigott, head of operations at Slim Chickens, said: “We continue to have a fantastic response to Slim’s in the locations we have opened so far and the number of ‘Slimthusiasts’ is growing rapidly across the UK and in keeping with all of our other outlets, our most recently opened restaurant in Bristol is already performing way ahead of our expectations.
“We are really looking forward to further extending our special brand of chicken into the South East and into Bluewater Shopping Centre.”
