Slim Chickens signs 14-store deal to expand throughout Illinois 

The better-chicken brand has signed with an experienced operator to grow the brand in Illinois

Slim Chickens has announced the signing of a multi-unit agreement with Al Cabrera, an experienced operator in the restaurant industry. The deal will bring Slim Chickens to the DuPage, Will and Kankakee Counties. 

“Since I joined the brand last year, I have been eager to continue growing with Slim Chickens,” said Al Cabrera, the seasoned multi-unit operator leading this 14-unit expansion.  

“Throughout my time in the restaurant industry owning and operating a variety of concepts, I know that Slims is an ideal brand to expand with. Not only is its leadership team easily accessible, but its product is second to none — it was a no-brainer to add 14 more units to the 60 I have already committed to.” 

Cabrera has over three decades of experience operating over 200 locations across several different restaurant concepts. His expertise and skillset will prove invaluable to Slim Chickens in Illinois. 

“We could not be happier to expand with Al — he has been a perfect fit into our franchise system, and we are eager to see his continued growth,” said Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens.  

“As an Illinoisian myself, I know the high-demand residents have for more Slims locations. Community members throughout DuPage, Will and Kankakee counties are in for a treat!”
