Slim Chickens

Slim Chickens has opened its first South Arkansas store at 1720 N. West Avenue in El Dorado.

Slim Chickens opened on Monday its newest restaurant at 1720 N. West Avenue in El Dorado.

Dixie Chicken LLC, the franchise owner of the El Dorado Slim Chickens, is now opening its eighth Slim Chickens store in Arkansas and sees the market, which is the largest urban population center in its region, as an excellent growth opportunity for the brand.

"We're looking forward to bringing the Slim Chickens southern hospitality and fresh, delicious chicken to El Dorado. We know that Slim Chickens will be the perfect option for residents in the area and we plan to be a vital part of the community," said John Luckett, chief operating partner of Dixie Chicken.

Dixie Chicken is looking to open 15-20 Slim Chickens locations over the next three to five years.

Slim Chickens will create 75 new jobs.

Since its founding in 2003, the brand has celebrated over 90 openings in 14 states, with an overall goal of opening 600 restaurants by 2025. In Arkansas alone, the brand has already grown to 18 locations.

Slim Chickens’ chicken tenders are buttermilk marinated, hand-breaded and always cooked fresh-to-order.

A choice of 17 housemade sauces adds flavor. Slim Chickens also offers fresh sandwiches, salads, wraps and its signature chicken and waffles. To offset the savory side of the menu, rotating desserts served in Mason jars are also available.
