Dip it, dip it real good: Slim Chickens launches the world’s first dippable billboard

Londoners get saucy with delicious new dippable billboard from US fried chicken kings, Slim Chickens, which recently set up home in the capital

UK’s latest fried chicken phenomenon, Slim Chickens, has unveiled the world’s first dippable billboard, in a bid to help Londoners get saucy. Coming to Boxpark Shoreditch, East London on Wednesday, 9th May, the giant interactive billboard contains 12 iconic Slim Chickens sauces, including Garlic Parmesan, Mango Habanero and Sriracha Garlic.

The Slim Chicken Tender Truck will be on site to hand out delicious free chicken tenders for anyone who fancies a dip in the capital’s delicious new billboard. On-site Slim Chickens security will ensure no one breaks the cardinal rule of double dipping.

Devoted dippers will be spoilt for choice, as Slim Chickens’ sauce selection offers something for everyone from its sweet Honey BBQ sauce to spicy Sriracha Garlic and cool Blue Cheese sauce.

The cult US chicken restaurant which launched its first London site in March has already proven a hit with Londoners, thanks to its famous hand breaded, buttermilk marinated and cooked to order tenders.

Kalila Tiffany, General Manager of Slim Chickens commented:

“Since launching in London last month, we’ve had thousands of people raving about our range of awesome sauces, so we thought what better way to get even more people tasting the sauce(s) of our success than with this delicious dippable billboard! We’re from the USA, where you can’t swing a chicken without hitting a billboard, but we’ve never seen one as tasty as this.

Having been a part of Slim Chickens since the start in Arkansas and seeing the UK embrace us over here has been incredible. Chicken fans of the capital unite, and get dipping.”

The flagship UK restaurant opened last month on James St, near London’s Bond Street. The menu includes Slim Chickens famous chicken tenders, wings and chicken sandwiches as well as quintessential Southern sides including mac ‘n’ cheese, Texas toast and fried pickles. For diners looking for a delicious dessert, there is a range of classic Southern sweets on offer, from fried chocolate pies to chocolate brownie, and strawberry cheesecake jars.
