Slim Chickens Inks Multi-Unit Franchise Agreement in Cleveland

by Katie Lee

Cleveland — Slim Chickens, a leading fast-casual franchise which features dine-in and drive-through in the “better chicken” segment, will open its first location in Cleveland in the first quarter of 2021. The forthcoming restaurant comes out of the brand’s recent six-unit franchise agreement in the Cleveland market. This will mark the brand’s first location in the Cleveland market and second location in Ohio.

An experienced restaurant operator, David Giesen is bringing Slim Chickens to the area. He is a multi-unit owner of several fast food and fast-casual restaurants across Ohio and Colorado. Giesen owns 15 restaurants between his brands and has more than 29 years of restaurant ownership experience.

The better-chicken brand has opened 100 locations across the United States, the United Kingdom and Kuwait. With more than 350 units in development, the fast-growing brand is well on its way to reaching its goal of 600 restaurants.

Last year, Slim Chickens attracted an equity investment from 10 Point Capital, the private equity firm behind segment leader Tropical Smoothie Café.
