The First 100 Guests Will Receive A Zaxby’s Fanatic Pack Of FREE Dealz For A Year*

MARIETTA, Ga. (September 25, 2013) — It’s a grand opening celebration for a new Zaxby’s location in Marietta, and everyone is invited! Licensee Dustin Mullis, with partners Greg Shumate, Alex Koutouzis and Gregg Litchfield, will open the doors to Marietta’s sixth Zaxby’s restaurant Monday. The new restaurant is located at 2756 Sandy Plains Road, near Sprayberry High School. A Southeast favorite for chicken fingers and wings, this Zaxby’s location will open at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, September 30, and operate 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day.

To celebrate the official grand opening this Monday, September 30, the first 100 guests in line will receive a Zaxby’s Fanatic Pack with 52 FREE Dealz from Zaxby’s. Each card is valid for one week, for the dates specified.* Zaxby’s new Fanatic Pack of Free Dealz will include menu favorites like a free Meal Deal, a free Milkshake, a free Zappetizer, and more. The grand opening celebration will feature an appearance by Zax Kidz Club mascot, LZ, balloons for kids, and menu sampling for guests.

“We are excited to be a part of the community and can’t wait to see everyone at our grand opening Monday to celebrate with us!” said Mullis, who, with his partners, also owns the Marietta location at 1347 Church Street Extension. Zaxby’s has built its reputation and loyal fan following by providing a fantastic experience, excellent service and great-tasting food, and we plan to carry on that tradition with Zaxby’s Fanz at our new location.”

The new 3,652-square-foot location will seat 74 in Zaxby’s unique design — floor-to-ceiling brick walls, modernized tables and booths, all complemented by an eclectic mix of photography. Zaxby’s also offers drive-thru services to meet the needs of customers on the go.

Mullis and his partners believe the restaurant — from the atmosphere to the service — will exceed community expectations. “We’ve assembled a great group of team members who will deliver on the Zaxby’s mission to ‘consistently create encore experiences that enrich lives one person at a time,’” said Mullis.

            The new location will be the 14th for Cobb County, and the 208th for the Peach State. Zaxby’s currently operates more than 580 locations in 13 states — Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

An alternative to fast food, Zaxby’s offers prepared-at-order chicken fingers, wings, sandwiches and salads. Zaxby’s most popular items are its hand-breaded Chicken Fingerz and Traditional or Boneless Wings, smothered in a choice of nine signature sauces with names like Wimpy, Tongue Torch, Nuclear and Insane.

The menu also offers innovative Zappetizers like Tater Chips, Spicy Fried Mushrooms and Fried White Cheddar Bites, as well as a variety of Party Platterz perfect for any tailgating, family gathering or special occasion where flavor cravers come together to enjoy great food and good times.

Zaxby’s offers three salads, or Zalads: The House, The Blue and The Caesar. All of Zaxby’s Zalads offer more chicken, unique ingredients, such as French-fried onions, fresh veggies and juicy tomatoes, and are larger than most salads offered elsewhere. Each is prepared with your choice of chicken, three kinds of lettuce and a variety of craveable toppings. Zalads are not assembled until your order is placed, versus being pre-made and stored in a cooler.

As a sweet treat for fans, Zaxby’s offers a new line of premium milkshakes, including the popular Birthday Cake and Banana Pudding Milkshakes and the new Chocolate Cookie Milkshake. They are rich and creamy, hand-blended, topped with whipped cream and are almost impossible to resist.

Don’t forget to join the Zaxby’s grand opening celebration this Monday, September 30, starting at 10:30 a.m.!

*Free Fanatic Dealz cards are not redeemable before or after the dates shown, and are valid at this location only.
