12 Oct Illinois’ First Slim Chickens!
East Peoria is gearing up to welcome a new restaurant called Slim Chickens. The Fayetteville, Arkansas- based franchise has nearly 30 restaurant mainly across Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma, but the company is expanding the brand to Illinois thanks to entrepreneur Dave Harris, who is also the director of operations.
The restaurant will be located at 205 River Road in East Peoria, and expected to open on November 16.
“This is the first Slim Chickens in Illinois but I think it will go over well in this market,” said Harris. “Our wings and tenders are fresh and cooked to order. You can have them breaded or grilled. We call it ‘life-changing chicken. There’s really nothing like it here.”
