ATHENS, Ga. — May 7, 2020Zaxby’s announces the reopening of its restaurant at 2629 Peach Orchard Rd. in Augusta, after a scrape and rebuild that replaced the old building with a new farmhouse-style design. A fan favorite for chicken fingers, wings and salads, the fast-casual restaurant is owned and operated by a long-time Zaxby’s licensee group that owns and operates 27 other Zaxby’s locations throughout the Southeast. This Zaxby’s location is scheduled to open as drive-thru and curbside pick-up only on Monday, May 11. A subsequent reopening of the dining room will happen later pursuant to state and federal guidance.

“Our Zaxby’s has been a part of this community for 20 years, and we’re thrilled to continue offering flavorful chicken and signature sauces in our new restaurant,” co-owner Steven Stembridge said. “We’re pleased to pivot our business model to drive-thru and curbside only to adapt to the ‘new normal’ and make our guests feel as safe as possible.”

The 3,600 square-foot restaurant has seating for 72 and reflects Zaxby’s commitment to providing an accessible and authentic dining experience. The location uses Zaxby’s newest layout with enhanced efficiency features to increase drive-thru speed. Customers may order ahead through or the Zaxby’s app. Third-party delivery will be available via Uber Eats and DoorDash.

Zaxby’s recently launched a new menu option specifically designed to meet the needs of families sheltering at home. Zax Family Packs include 20 Chicken Fingerz or 30 boneless wings with shareable sides to feed four people at a value price point of $24.99, available at participating locations while supplies last.

An alternative to fast food, Zaxby’s serves fresh, prepared-at-order, hand-breaded Chicken Fingerz and wings made in a variety of nine sauces. The menu also features four Zalads and eight sandwiches along with complementary Shareables including Fried White Cheddar Bites, Tater Chips, Spicy Fried Mushrooms, and, for a limited time, Fried Pickles.

The restaurant will provide about 40 new jobs in the community. The licensee group has plans for an additional location in the Augusta area.


Founded by childhood friends Zach McLeroy and Tony Townley in 1990, Zaxby's is committed to serving delicious chicken fingers, wings, sandwiches and salads in a fun, offbeat atmosphere where customers are considered friends. Zaxby’s has grown to more than 900 locations in 17 states and is headquartered in Athens, Georgia. For more information, visit or
