Slim Chickens, a leader in the “better chicken” segment of fast-casual restaurants, is expanding the presence of its fresh chicken tenders and wings with unrivaled flavor in Lawrence, Kansas. This restaurant is the third in Kansas for franchisee, Eli Amey.
The new restaurant opened at 2412 Iowa Street today, Monday, August 7, 2017, adding to Amey’s existing location in Lawrence, Kansas. After signing a five-unit deal with the brand in 2016, Amey has developed three locations in just one year due to the growing demand for the delicious offerings of Slim Chickens.
