The franchise rights owner for Slim Chickens restaurants in Arizona has acquired a site in Maricopa.
Tom Barnett, who owns the rights to operate up to 32 of the chicken-focused restaurants in Arizona as well as the city’s existing and future Burger King franchises, announced Slim Chickens will built on property between McDonald’s and Big 5 Sporting Goods along Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway, near Walmart in The Wells.
Chicken lovers will have to be patient.
“We’ll likely break ground first quarter of next year on Slims,” Barnett said.
He said the process is taking a little longer than usual due to a difficult permitting process and higher construction costs,” he said.
