Slim Chickens finally opens its doors in Nottingham.  The concept originally from Arkansas, USA is serving fresh cooked to order chicken tenders, wings, burgers and more.

Slims have opened in the former MOD Pizza site on the Market Square and was let by Jack Shakespeare of FHP.  MOD Pizza suffered liquidation during the initial lockdown last year and whilst it was one of their best performing sites unfortunately there were wider group issues.

Boparan Restaurants, who own Slims, have taken a new lease on the Grade II Listed property matching the original lease terms that MOD occupied the unit on.  This demonstrates to investors looking to purchase High Street locations in City Centres despite the challenges we face in the market that premises in the right locations will still achieve competitive demand and strong rents.

Jack Shakespeare of FHP comments:-

“It is without question that the last year and a half has been a tough time for restaurants and hospitality but nevertheless demand for property in the F&B sector has been strong throughout lockdown and FHP have brokered countless lockdown deals.

We have been crowned Nottingham’s most active agent for 2020 and have won the Estates Gazette East Midlands Deals Award for leisure for the past 2 years and retail for the past 10 years.  Last year we were placed 5th nationally in retail.

We are seeing renewed confidence in the market and had competitive bidding on this site and as a result achieved a fantastic result on behalf of our client.”

In addition FHP have the adjacent premises, the former Shuropody, now under offer with another new brand to bring to Nottingham’s busiest location in the early part of 2022.
