Faris Ballouta is no stranger to Orland Square and its food options. The 20-year Orland Park resident already owns a Red Mango and Doc Popcorn inside the confines of the mall, but he thought the food court options were lacking.

“The food court was in dire need of a new restaurant,” as Ballouta put it. “I felt like it needed a spark.”

So, he decided to turn slim pickins into a Slim Chickens.

Ballouta, 28, said he was inspired by his travels to the South.
