UTAH’S FIRST ZAXBY’S HATCHES MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24, WITH A GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION

UTAH’S FIRST ZAXBY’S HATCHES MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24, WITH A GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION

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

OGDEN, Utah — It’s a grand opening celebration for the first Zaxby’s location in Utah, and everyone is invited! Mike Cummings, with brothers Jeff Howes and Ryan Howes, will open the doors to Ogden’s first Zaxby’s restaurant Monday. A Southeast favorite for chicken fingers and wings and one of the nation’s fastest growing restaurant chains, the new restaurant is located at 141 West 12th St., and will operate Sunday through Thursday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.

To celebrate the official grand opening this Monday, February 24, 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.

“We are excited to be a part of the Ogden community and can’t wait to see everyone on grand opening day to celebrate with us!” said Cummings. “It’s important to us to build longstanding partnerships and be a part of the community we serve. We are looking forward to beginning those relationships in Ogden.”

The new 3,600-square-foot location will seat 75 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.

 “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 fans in Ogden,” said Ryan Howes. Jeff Howes believes 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 Jeff Howes.

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 sauces with names like Wimpy, Tongue Torch, Nuclear and Insane.

Ogden Zaxby’s guests can also enjoy The Coca-Cola Company’s proprietary drink fountain, Coca-Cola Freestyle.® The sleek, stylish fountain is touch screen operated, enabling guests to select from more than 100 regular and low-calorie brands – including many varieties of waters, sports drinks, lemonades and sparkling beverages that, prior to the arrival of Coca-Cola Freestyle®, were not available in the U.S.

The new Ogden Zaxby’s location will open for breakfast at 6 a.m. and feature a selection of Morning Mealz like the Signature Chicken Biscuit Meal, Kickin’ Chicken Biscuit Meal and the Texas Toast Panini Meal,  all complemented with a side of Taterz or Gritz and a Coffee or Beverage. The breakfast menu also offers sides like Steel-Cut Oatmeal and Donut Bites, for guests looking for a sweet morning treat.

The lunch and dinner menus offer innovative Zappetizers like Tater Chips, Spicy Fried Mushrooms and Fried White Cheddar Bites, as well as a variety of Party Platterz perfect for any family gathering or special occasion.

Zaxby’s also offers four salads, or Zalads: The House, The Blue, The Caesar and its newest addition The Cobb. 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 chicken, three kinds of lettuce and a variety of toppings. Zalads are assembled at the time the order is placed, versus being pre-made and stored in a cooler.

Additionally, 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, and are topped with whipped cream.

Zaxby’s currently operates more than 600 locations in 15 states — Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia.

Don’t forget to join the Zaxby’s grand opening celebration this Monday, February 24, starting at 6 a.m.!

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