With over 80 outlets in the US, Slim Chickens now aims to roll out its chain in cities across the UK.
Tom Crowley, CEO at BRG, said: “Cardiff is a lively city with a growing student population and booming food scene. It was the obvious choice for us to open our first regional restaurant outside of London.
“We can’t wait to bring a little bit of the Southern States of America to Cardiff and we believe it’s going to be a big hit.”
The restaurant, which aims to open before Christmas, will include ordering kiosks, a refillable drinks station, and a click and collect service, all designed to reduce the need for queues.
