Grosvenor has announced that Slim Chickens, the growing American dining brand operated in the UK by Boparan Restaurant Group (BRG), has chosen Liverpool One for its city debut.
Set to open later this year, the 5,000 sq ft flagship restaurant will be located on The Terrace, adjacent to Las Iguanas and Five Guys, and will encompass over 175 covers, including an al-fresco dining area.
The new site will offer the brand’s full menu, including their buttermilk marinated, hand-breaded and cooked-to-order chicken tenders.
Robert Deacon, senior asset manager at Grosvenor, commented: “The signing of Slim Chickens at Liverpool ONE stands to strengthen the destination’s diverse F&B offering, and we are pleased to have secured the city debut for the fast-growing brand.
“Sitting comfortably alongside the likes of Five Guys, Yard & Coop and Byron, the signing of Slim Chickens marks the appeal of Liverpool One as a key destination for brands to grow, whilst demonstrating our active response to growing consumer demand for fast-casual dining options.”
Paul Gilligan, property director, Boparan Restaurant Group, added: “At Slim Chickens we are all about bringing fresh, handmade food as well as a dose of Southern Hospitality to social, community-driven locations, which is exactly what Liverpool One represents for us.
“We are experiencing great success with the brand in the UK and are very much looking forward to launching our next Slim Chickens flagship site at Liverpool One later this year following longstanding interest in the destination.”
