Louisiana’s Second Zaxby’s Hatched Monday, September 16

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

RUSTON, La. - Sept. 11, 2013 - Licensees Ray Anding and Randall McDonald will open the doors to Ruston’s first Zaxby’s restaurant this Monday. The new restaurant is located at 1103 South Service Road West, off Interstate 20 near Louisiana Tech University. A Southeast favorite for chicken fingers and wings, this Zaxby’s location will operate 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day with the drive-thru open until 2 a.m.

“We’ve always wanted to bring a Zaxby’s to Ruston, and we are excited to be opening Louisiana’s second location,” said Anding, who, with McDonald, opened the first Louisiana location last summer in West Monroe. “Zaxby’s has built its reputation and loyal following by providing excellent service and great-tasting food, and we plan to carry on that tradition with the Ruston community at this new, convenient location.”

The new 3,400-square-foot location will seat 90 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 licensees believe 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 Anding.

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.

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.

The 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 also 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.
