About Franchise

School friends Zach McLeroy and Tony Townley founded Zaxby’s back in the 1990s. When they were opening their restaurant they wanted it to have tasty chicken and an atmosphere where you could be yourself. And it's true many years and locations later. Zaxby's still serves delicious chicken fingers, wings, sandwiches, and salads in a fun, offbeat atmosphere where we welcome customers as friends.

In 2019, Zaxby’s has more than 900 locations in 18 states with headquarters in Athens, GA.

Zaxby’s founders decided to open their place when they understood that their community has a lot of fast food or sit-down dining options but still something was missing. The key idea was to make a place with a great atmosphere where food quality is of ultimate importance. They decided to serve the freshest chicken fingers and Buffalo wings in town. First Zaxby’s was opened in 1990 in Statesboro, GA.

Their concept of “quick-casual” restaurants has proven to be very successful.

Now Zach and Tony operate 140 company stores and there are over 900 locations.

Franchise Zaxby's Franchising Inc.

All these years we've expanded our footprint. At the start, there were few locations in Georgia. We eased into the Atlanta market, then into neighboring states. We enlarged little by little. By popular demand, Zaxby's restaurants were opened from the sandy plains of Florida to the Appalachian hills. After that history leads us across the Mississippi to the west coast. We believe that there is still time to "get in early" and we hope to become the next big national restaurant chain. Most of our restaurants are concentrated in the southeast, which leaves a whole lot of unsigned territory. One day, we think there will be Zaxby's restaurants across the country.

Training and Support

We're entrepreneurs too. So we know all about the desire to have your own business. At the same time, being in business for yourself doesn't mean you have to be by yourself. That describes our approach to franchisee support. We understand that it's your business in your community. And we want to offer you all the resources our most successful franchisees use to create their winning formulas. Our job is to get you to the dance, so you can shake your groove thing.

As you may already know, our food is so good, people typically can't stop talking about it. And that's the best marketing you can get. But with all that talking, how will they be able to savor their favorite Zaxby's recipes? That's why we develop marketing and advertising programs to generate awareness at the regional level and drive traffic at the local level. We work hard to build the brand, so you can build your business.

Award-Winning Advertising Campaigns

You might not be able to afford dozens of the most recognizable celebrities to promote your restaurant. But when you're a part of Zaxby's, you're part of a family that can. With hundreds of restaurants and growing, we're starting to get a lot of attention. Our national advertising campaign features lots of big names endorsing our food. And partnerships with charities like the Make-A-Wish Foundation® help us to communicate our values in our marketing.

Advertising Cooperatives, Local Marketing Tools

There's strength in numbers. And it's one of the best things about being a Zaxby's franchisee. Local advertising cooperatives make it possible for a handful of stores to generate the impact of a major national chain. Plus, our field marketing support helps you reach your community directly. There's even a local store marketing tool kit with hundreds of marketing packages to get the word out.

The best in fast food bone in and boneless wings. I'm a bigger fan of the boneless and they have a wide variety of good sauces. Tongue torch if your a fan of the hot but not overkill. Nuclear if you want to burn your tongue off. Texas toast and crinkle fries with each meal too top it off.

The negative thing about this location is definitely the parking lot and surrounding traffic area. It can be really difficult to get in and out of with the high volume of traffic it sees. I can also be very busy during Peak eating hours during the week. So if you're on a lunch break you might want to consider how long you have before you decide on this as your lunch option.

Other than that is location is awesome. They have all the typical things you would expect to find for this location and ...the chain in general. Orders are always made fresh however they do come out quickly. When my personal favorites is the Cobb salad with fried chicken. They do have a good light ranch if you're trying to cut calories as well.

The inside offers plenty of seating so if you're on a lunch break but want to stay and hang out you should be able to find a seat. The inside is also kept clean for the most part so you don't have to worry about dirty seats. During peak hours you may find a few dirty tables since it's a high turnover.

Overall: A
Despite being in a high-traffic area this location actually serves up food pretty quickly just be sure to keep in mind that surrounding traffic may back up and cause it to take longer just because of where it's located.

Zaxby's, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Easily my favorite fast food chicken place, yes even more than Chick-fil-A, this Zaxby's is located in the Millenia area.

The food is always fresh to order, and the staff are usually pretty friendly. The drive-thru makes it convenient for when I'm trying to hurry on my lunch break.

As with their other locations, they have a nice selection of snacks, salads, sandwiches, and chicken plates. They do both Chicken Fingers & Wings, as well as c...ombo plates. They serve Coke products inside, and they have very good sweet tea. Their french fries are large, crinkle-cut, and Seasons deliciously. Most plates also come with a slice of garlic bread using Texas toast. Absolutely delicious!

It's dangerous how convenient this location is to my job, as now I go there about once a week. If you've never been to a Zaxby's, this is a good one to try to start. Be warned though, it's addicting!
