"We are excited to be opening the Austell Zaxby's location and have been working diligently to renovate the interior of the restaurant with new computer software, kitchen equipment, and a dining room décor to provide an excellent dining experience for the community that has longed for Zaxby's to return to Austell," said Steve Silva, who, along with his partner, Derek Weilbaecher, will be the new licensee for the reopened Austell location. "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 at this newly reopened location."
Silva believes 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 Silva.
Zaxby's currently operates more than 600 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.
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.
Austell 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.
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.
