Louisiana Here We Come!

Louisiana Here We Come!

The first Slim Chickens franchise location in Louisiana is set to open at the beginning of 2016 in West Monroe, adding as many as 70 employees and offering diverse menu items that will help it stand out from other chicken chains in the market.

 “We just know the market and know that people love to eat in West Monroe and decided to go there with our first restaurant,” said vice president of operations Barry Beam.

The West Monroe location is just the foundation of growth plans for Arklatex Restaurants Inc. The company has purchased the rights to northern Louisiana and plans to branch out after the success of their first franchise.

 Other than the classic chicken and waffles, Slim Chickens also offers fried mushrooms, mac and cheese and their popular Mason jar desserts. The brand also carries hand crafted dipping sauces made from scratch.
