Our Flavored Origins

Find out who we are, where we come from, and where the chicken met its delicious sauce.

Our Story

The very first Zaxby’s opened in 1990 in Statesboro, Ga. Founder and CEO Zach McLeroy built the concept around indescribably good chicken and the unrivaled flavor of Zax sauce. He built the culture around a desire to enrich the lives of others. Today there are more than 900 locations, nine distinct sauces, countless Z-words, and one Signature Sandwich.

Our Mission

The Zaxby’s mission is to consistently create encore experiences that enrich lives, one person at a time. Whether you’re part of the Zaxby’s family or part of the community we serve, we strive to make a positive and lasting impact.
