LYNCHBURG’S FIRST ZAXBY’S LOCATION HATCHES MONDAY, JULY 7 WITH GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION

LYNCHBURG’S FIRST ZAXBY’S LOCATION HATCHES MONDAY, JULY 7 WITH GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION

First 90 Guests Will Receive A Zaxby’s Fanatic Pack of FREE Dealz For A Year*

 

LYNCHBURG, Va. (July 2, 2014) — It’s a grand opening celebration for Lynchburg’s first Zaxby’s location and everyone is invited. On Monday, July 7, father-and-son licensees Tom and Jim Rodgers will open the doors to the new restaurant and to celebrate, the first 90 guests in line by 10:30 a.m. will receive a Zaxby’s Fanatic Pack with 52 free Dealz. A Southeast favorite for chicken fingers and wings and one of the nation’s fastest-growing restaurant chains, the new restaurant is located at 1038 Wards Ferry Road in front of Target and will operate 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday – Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday – Saturday.

Including menu favorites like a free Meal Deal, a free Milkshake, a free Zappetizer and more, Zaxby’s new Fanatic Packs of free Dealz will be distributed at the 11 a.m. opening. Each card is valid for one week, for the dates specified.*

“Lynchburg residents have shown great support for the brand and we want to be part of a thriving community,” said Jim Rodgers. “We’re excited to bring a Zaxby’s to Lynchburg and are confident that the same quality of food and service Zaxby’s is known for will keep area residents coming back for more.”

The new 4,000-square-foot location will seat 91 in Zaxby’s unique design — a bright, open interior décor complemented by custom vintage prints and school memorabilia. Zaxby’s also offers drive-thru services to meet the needs of customers on the go.

The new location will be the first for Lynchburg and the seventh for the state. Zaxby’s currently operates more than 620 locations in 15 states — Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah 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 sauces with names like Wimpy, Tongue Torch, Nuclear and Insane.

Lynchburg’s 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 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.

Don’t forget to join the Zaxby’s grand opening celebration this Monday, July 7, starting at 11 a.m.

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