Better Breakthrough Chicken Brand Opens Fifth Location in Florida

Slim Chickens, a leading fast casual franchise, announced today its new restaurant opening at the MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida. This location becomes Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s fifth location. The better-chicken brand has opened more than 145 locations across the United States and the United Kingdom and has more than 700 locations in development.


“Continually connecting with groups like Army & Air Force Exchange Services brings us a deeper sense of purpose as a brand,” said Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens. “We are excited for Slims to become a staple gathering spot for everyone at the base to sit down and connect with one another while enjoying the tasty food we have to offer.”


The brand prides itself on its cooked-to-order fresh food and strong devoted fanbase, also known as “Slimthusiasts.” Slim Chickens has distinguished itself in the better-chicken segment by offering high-quality food and 17 house-made dipping sauces, allowing customers to enjoy a different flavor profile with each visit. Its menu is broader than many in the segment, offering chicken tenders, fresh salads, sandwiches, chicken and waffles, chicken wings and unique side items.
