Fast-Casual Franchise Brand Adds Fourth Missouri Location, Brings Better Chicken to Liberty

Slim Chickens, a leader in the “better chicken” segment of fast-casual restaurants, will be bringing its fresh chicken and unrivaled flavor to Liberty, MO on Sunday, October 1, 2017, continuing the brands expansion in the state. The corporate-owned restaurant is located at 126 S. Stewart Rd, Liberty, MO.

“There is always a demand for great food in Missouri, and the expansion in Liberty reflects our continued effort to bring people high-quality ingredients and outstanding service for an unforgettable dining experience,” said Sam Rothschild, COO of Slim Chickens. “Slim Chickens is a growing favorite for local diners in communities across Missouri and we expect the demand for our life changing chicken to increase.”

Slim Chickens’ corporate team is building upon its existing success and the Liberty opening to fuel its larger growth strategy throughout the greater Kansas City market and the state of Missouri. With both corporate and franchise owned locations in the area, the support of successful operations created huge potential for the brand.

“We’re looking to open several Slim Chickens restaurants throughout the greater Kansas City market over the next three years,” said Rothschild. “This brand’s offerings appeal to so many guests here in the Liberty area, and we’re excited to continue spreading our fresh, Southern flavor and hospitality to fans across the city and across the state.”

Slim Chickens has seen significant growth in the past several years, expanding from its home state of Arkansas into Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois, Arizona, Ohio and Tennessee and emerging as a national player within fast-casual dining’s “better chicken” segment. The leadership team has plans to add an additional 40-50 restaurants each year moving forward.

“Our top-of-the-line menu offerings have propelled us into a league of our own, with no competitors doing quite what we are doing,” said Rothschild. “Our freshly made Southern dishes and homemade recipes make our loyal guests feel good about the food they are eating, and we’re really proud to be able to share the brand experience with a new community.”

Focusing on fresh chicken, the brand has developed a niche in its sector of the restaurant industry for product quality that can’t be found anywhere else. With fresh ingredients and minimal freezer space in every restaurant, Slim Chickens honors a commitment to homemade recipes and strong supplier partnerships, ensuring guests can feel good about the food they eat. The down-home Southern brand offers diners hand-breaded or grilled chicken tenders paired with a choice of eight housemade dipping sauces or seven wing sauces for exceptional flavor that has earned admiration from both customers and critics. If guests want to switch it up, Slim Chickens also offers fresh salads, chicken and waffles, and a Cayenne Ranch Chicken Sandwich. To offset the savory side of the menu, rotating dessert flavors served in Mason jars are available.
