November 11, 2019

Slim Chickens, a leader in the "better chicken" segment of fast-casual restaurants, continued expansion of its 100% all-natural, fresh chicken and unrivaled flavor in Kansas, with its newest opening in Mission West Shopping Center at 6591 Johnson Drive in Mission, Kansas on November 18, 2019.

Aside from bringing its famous, delicious fried chicken and southern sides to the area, the new Slim Chickens location in Mission will also make a positive economic impact with over 50 new jobs anticipated for creation in the community.

The Mission opening is just one piece in Slim Chickens' larger growth story. Since its founding in 2003, the brand has celebrated over 90 openings in 14 states, with an overall goal of opening 600 restaurants by 2025. In Kansas alone, the brand has already grown to five locations.

"Our freshly made southern dishes and homemade recipes create loyal guests who feel good about the food they're eating and we're proud to be able to grow our loyal fan base into the Mission market," said Slim Chickens Chief Operating Officer Sam Rothschild.

David M. Block and Max Kosoglad of Block & Company, Inc., Realtors negotiated the long-term lease transaction for the newly remodeled 2,300+ square-foot Slim Chickens restaurant building. "The new restaurant will be a great addition to Mission West Shopping Center, and we look forward to working with Slim Chickens to add more locations throughout the Greater Kansas City Metro Area," said David M. Block, President of Block & Company, Inc., Realtors. Block & Company, Inc., Realtors is responsible for the leasing, property management, and construction management of Mission West Shopping Center.

By focusing on providing only 100% fresh, all-natural chicken tenders that are buttermilk-marinated, hand-breaded and always cooked fresh-to-order, the brand has committed to providing a "better chicken" experience that can't be found anywhere else. In addition, a choice of 17 housemade sauces adds exceptional flavor and has earned admiration from both guests and critics alike. Slim Chickens also offers fresh sandwiches, salads, wraps and its signature chicken and waffles. To offset the savory side of the menu, rotating desserts served in mason jars are also available.
