Slim Chickens has announced the signing of a multi-unit franchise deal with Nick and Chad Sternitzky of PREL Investments Inc. for nine new locations in Wisconsin. The locations are slated to be situated in Madison, Green Bay, Appleton, Oshkosh, Fond du Lac, and Wausau.
“After doing research on restaurant concepts, we found Slims to be a perfect fit for us. Not only do they have a great executive team with clearly established systems and processes, we’re a big fan of the food,” said Sternitzky.
“We are excited to hit the ground running to bring Slim Chickens’ southern hospitality and fresh flavors throughout Central Wisconsin.”
The brothers started out in their family business by assisting in operations at their parents’ Arby’s restaurant, which has been in the family for over 35 years. After gaining some experience, the duo ventured out on their own by opening a Freddy’s Frozen Custard in central Wisconsin.
“Chad and Nick are ideal operators to break Slims’ into Wisconsin. Their experience in successfully operating Arby’s and Freddy’s proves their expertise,” said Jackie Lobdell, vice president of franchise development at Slim Chickens.
“Also, the deep understanding they have of the Wisconsin restaurant scene will quickly make Slim Chickens a go-to mealtime destination.”
After a strong 2021, Slim Chickens recently hit a milestone of 150 locations, read more here
