“We’ve had our eye on this location for quite some time,” said Tommy El Mahdi with Florida’s Best Chicken, LLC – the local franchisee group operating this location. “This area is part of a fresh, new and growing development that sits adjacent to a significant part of Florida tourism and history. We are very fortunate to be part of it.”

The Celebration opening is one piece in Slim Chickens’ larger growth story. Since its founding in 2003, the brand has celebrated over 250 locations opened and a fanatical following in 34 U.S. states, as well as international locations in the United Kingdom, with an overall goal of opening 600 restaurants within the next decade.


In Florida alone, the brand has already grown tremendously to 13 locations.

By focusing on providing only 100% fresh, all-natural chicken tenders that are buttermilk-marinated, hand-breaded and always cooked fresh-to-order, the brand has committed to providing a “better chicken” experience that can’t be found anywhere else. In addition, a choice of 17 housemade sauces adds exceptional flavor and has earned admiration from both guests and critics alike.


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.
