A new southern fried chicken restaurant is set to open at Bluewater shopping centre. The Boparan Restaurant Group (BRG) will convert their Ed’s Diner, located in the upper mall by the Showcase Cinema, into a Slim Chickens, also owned by BRG.
It is set to rebrand next month, according to Big Hospitality .
Job adverts have been posted on Indeed for two kitchen team members and a front of house employee.
We could be seeing a lot more Slim Chickens in the UK as BRG, who used to run Giraffe in Bluewater too, look to expand the franchise this year.
Slim Chickens prides itself on fresh hand-breaded chicken using homemade recipes cooked to order and served in a “friendly Southern hospitality”.
The menu features wings, tenders, chicken sandwiches, wraps and salads.
As a meal, these come with fries, Texas toast, bottomless soda and a choice from a variety of house sauces including garlic parmesan and cayenne ranch.
Meals are priced from £7.45 to £13.45 if you are really hungry.
You can also get a variety of sides and milkshakes, with beer fans rejoicing at Camden Hells for £3 with a meal.
All this topped off with a jar dessert containing different variations of brownie if there’s still any room.
Founders Greg and Tom launched their first Slim Chickens venture back in 2003 in Fayetteville, Arkensas.
They now have more than 80 branches in America and have opened six UK stores in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Brunswick, Soho and James Street in London.
Bluewater is set to be number seven and the first of its kind in Kent.
