  • Arkansas-based fast food chain Slim Chickens is looking toward Orlando.

A new report from the Orlando Business Journal claims that Orlando is getting yet another chicken chain. Joining a downtown Huey Magoo's, a long-promised Jollibee's and a rumored chicken finger outlet from Louisiana-based Raising Cane's, it looks like Slim Chickens is coming to our city.

The Arkansas-based chain is reportedly talking to landlords in Orlando. A move to Central Florida isn't entirely out of the blue. They have several locations in Florida already, and a Tampa restaurant is one of 500 or so the chain officially has under development.

Slim Chickens sells a wide variety of chicken-based meals, including sandwiches, wraps, wings and tenders. When it gets here, it will join Bojangles and all the others in the great chicken chain migration happening around Orlando.
