Episode 2 – Tom Gordon, CEO – Slim Chickens

In Episode 2, Chris Happ dives in with Tom Gordon, CEO and co-founder of Slim Chickens. From store #1 in 2003 in Fayetteville, AR to store #100 in late 2019, Tom and fellow co-founder Greg Smart are largely responsible for the calculated growth of this surging better-chicken brand. This is a great conversation that lets us in on the mindset of a franchise restaurant leader right now. Tom talks about how he’s applying strategies learned from past economic shakeups, what’s keeping him up at night, and he also shares some unique insight about what he’s learned about his team through the pandemic.
