Aside from bringing its famous, delicious fried chicken and Southern-inspired sides to the area, the new Slim Chickens location in Fort Hood will also make a positive economic impact by creating over 75 new jobs in the community.
The Fort Hood opening is one piece in Slim Chickens’ larger growth story. Since its founding in 2003, the brand has celebrated over 100 openings in 15 states, with an overall goal of opening 600 restaurants by 2025. In Texas alone, the brand has already grown tremendously to nearly 25 locations.

In addition, a choice of 17 housemade sauces adds exceptional flavor and has earned admiration from both guests and critics alike.
