29 Nov Grand Opening in Humble, TX
Slim Chickens celebrated the one year anniversary of its first Houston-area opening with a splash, opening the doors to its third location.
“It was a fantastic grand-opening day,” said Slim Chickens area director Nathan Woodard in an interview with the Humble Observer. “We were busy. We definitely surpassed initial expectations; and we’re expecting it to get busier up through the weekend.”
Slim’s has been growing rapidly across the country. The brand tripled its presence from 2015 to 2016 and now has the attainable goal of reaching 600 locations by 2025.
“Slim Chickens is all about the southern hospitality,” Woodard said to Humble Observer reporter Melanie Feuk. “Our people and our culture, that’s really what makes us different. We’re not fast food. We don’t have heat lamps. Everything is cooked to order. Whether it’s our hand-breaded chicken tenders, wings or wraps, we’re going to cook it for your fresh. Our service and food are very high quality.”
Aside from great food, the chain also puts a heavy focus on community involvement at every location.
“We thought that Humble would be a great place to get involved,” Woodard said to the Humble Observer. “It’s a phenomenal community. For us, it’s about ‘life-changing chicken,’ and that’s why we try to entwine ourselves into the communities we serve. For our opening, we held a drive and gave to the Houston Food Bank. We also give back by offering discounts for our first responders, public servants and military in uniform. Additionally, we typically get involved with youth-type groups through sponsorships. We really like to get involved and give back to the community.”
