Slim Chickens opens fourth UK restaurant

The new Birmingham site is the chain’s second outlet outside London.

US fried chicken brand Slim Chickens has officially opened its fourth UK restaurant with Hammerson at Grand Central, Birmingham.

Their second outlet outside of London, the 1,100 sq ft unit was designed by an in-house team and serves the chain’s signature buttermilk marinated, hand-breaded chicken tenders alongside 13 homemade dipping sauces along with classic side dishes from the southern US.

Boparan Restaurant Group, which owns the Harry Ramsden’s, Giraffe and Ed’s Easy Diner brands, serves as the master franchisee of Slim Chickens in the UK.

“Our new restaurant brings a true Southern US hospitality experience to Grand Central. As part of our expansion plans, we have had a host of successful openings, including a pop-up van in Bullring,” Boparan Restaurant Group CEO Tom Crowley said.
