Newport News Zaxby’s Hatched Monday, April 21

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

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - April 16, 2014 - Hoozax Foods, Inc., led by Duane Hoover and son Carl Hoover, will open the doors to Newport News' first Zaxby's restaurant on 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 531 Oyster Point Road. Zaxby's will operate from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day.

"We are excited to be opening the first Newport News 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 currently own the Zaxby's locations in Hampton and Chesapeake, Va., and are looking forward to opening their first Zaxby's location in Newport News. "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 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.

Newport News 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.
