Hampton’s First Zaxby’s Hatched Monday, September 16

New Restaurant to Provide Residents Prepared-at-Order Chicken in a Casual Dining Atmosphere

HAMPTON, Va. - September 10, 2013 - Hoozax Foods, Inc., led by Duane Hoover and his family, will open the doors to Hampton’s first Zaxby’s restaurant this 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 2201 Todds Lane. Zaxby’s will operate 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day.

“We are excited to be opening the first Hampton Zaxby’s and truly believe area residents will fall in love with the inviting atmosphere, unparalleled service and unique menu,” said Carl Hoover. Hoover and his family have been long-time guests of the popular chicken chain and are looking forward to opening their first Zaxby’s location. “We’re confident our commitment to great food and exceptional service will make Zaxby’s a favorite gathering place for the Hampton community.”

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.

Zaxby’s is a pioneer of the quick-casual format, providing services and amenities that fall somewhere between fast food and a sit-down restaurant. At the new restaurant, customers will place their orders at the counter and will be called to pick up their prepared-at-order meals when they are ready.

The new location seats 90 and features 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.

An alternative to fast food, Zaxby’s 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 family gathering or special occasion.

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 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.

The new location will be the fourth for the state, with existing locations in Roanoke, Salem and Williamsburg. 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.
