Slim Chickens will continue the expansion of its fresh chicken concept for the first time outside of the United States through a partnership with Alghanim Industries, one of the largest privately owned companies in the Middle East and North Africa, according to a company press release.
Alghanim Indutries, based in Kuwait City, Kuwait, owns and operates more than 30 businesses in 40 countries across the MENA, Turkey, India and South East Asia. Since its founding more than a century ago, it has more than 300 brands and includes a number of US partners, including General Motors, Ford, Mars, Whirlpool, Wendy’s and American Express.
The first MENA-region Slim Chickens restaurant is expected to open in Kuwait in March 2017. This will be followed by a rapid brand roll-out across the entire region, according to the release.
“We are committed to expanding our portfolio by partnering with one of the most pioneering, value-based consumer companies in the world, and we look forward to introducing the Slim Chickens concept to consumers across the Middle East,” said Alghanim Industries Chairman Kutayba Alghanim. “Alghanim Industries has a proud track record of developing successful businesses with huge growth potential that meet the needs of the region’s expanding consumer base.”
