Charlotte Chicken Wars Heating Up As Slim Chicken Takes On The Charlotte Market


Watch out Bojangles, Chick Fil A, Popeyes, Zaxby’s, Churches Chicken, Chicken King, Hubee D’s, KFC, Price’s, Viva Chicken, The Roasting Co, and Horace’s Hot Fried Chicken – the Charlotte chicken wars are about to heat up yet again with the entrance of our newest contender – Slim Chicken.

The Arkansas-based chicken sandwich franchise has just partnered with Charlotte-based Break Bread Ventures to open 30 new locations around the Charlotte region, the Triad area, Columbia, SC, and southern VA.

“My partners & I look forward to bringing this incredible brand to parts of NC, SC & VA, with our first location in Charlotte to open later this year”, said Break Bread Ventures COO Joshua Frankel. “We look forward to offering best-in-class opportunities and positively impacting the communities in which we will serve.”

The chicken chain first launched in 2003 and currently has 125 locations across mid-America, Kuwait, and the UK. They specialize in chicken tenders, sandwiches, and chicken and waffle plates with a loyal fanbase who call themselves ‘slimthusiasts’.
