Slim Chickens has announced the opening of its newest location in Mankato, Minnesota. The new location at 1700 Madison Ave. in Mankato marks the brand’s first unit in Minnesota. The better brand signed a multi-unit with Letnes Restaurant Group, which plans to open 13 restaurants across the state.
The brand has opened over 180 locations across the U.S. and U.K., and has over 900 locations in development.
“We could not be more ecstatic about expanding into Minnesota! It’s definitely a great day to live in Mankato — we are eager for locals to get their first bite of our mouthwatering chicken and flavorful menu offerings,” said Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens.
“Our team can’t wait to see all of the success that Letnes Restaurant Group has with not only this location, but the 12 additional restaurants that they will open as part of their development agreement. They are a great example of a passionate multi-unit operating group that we are looking to expand with across the country.”
