“After the enormous success of our established Slim Chickens locations, we look forward to opening our fifth location in Pearland,” said Andrew Miller, Garza Management’s COO. “Slim Chickens provides top-notch customer service and will be a perfect fit in the warm and friendly community of Pearland.”
Aside from bringing its famous, delicious fried chicken and Southern-inspired sides to the area, the new Slim Chickens location in Pearland will also make a positive economic impact with more than 75 new jobs anticipated for creation in the community.

Slim Chickens also offers fresh sandwiches, salads, wraps and its signature chicken and waffles. To offset the savory side of the menu, rotating desserts served in Mason jars are also available.
