Slim Chickens Expanding in Dallas with 10 New Restaurants

Dallas — Slim Chickens has inked a deal to bring 10 locations to cities throughout greater Dallas. Farouk Jamal and Ali Poonja of Slim Brothers will be bringing the restaurants to Collin and Denton counties in fourth quarter 2022.

“After connecting with franchise owners in the system and learning about their experience owning Slims, we knew we had to be a part of the chicken segment,” says Jamal. “We’re excited to join an emerging brand that is growing rapidly, and we’re ready to hit the ground running.”

Jamal and Poonja currently own and operate multiple Burger King locations in their local community. Prior to working with the burger concept, their franchising experience ranged from brands like Dunkin’ to Subway.

“With over 20 years of franchise experience under their belts, we know that Slim Brothers is the perfect franchise group to grow Slims in Texas,” says Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens.

Slim Chickens first opened in 2003 in Fayetteville, Ark. Today, there are more than 150 Slim Chickens locations open and 750 restaurants in development. The brand, which recently launched a strategic multi-unit franchise growth initiative to reach 700 units in 10 years, is targeting qualified and experienced multi-unit groups to develop in dynamic markets across the country.
