Zaxby's is a franchised chain of fast casual restaurants that operates primarily in the Southeastern United States with 500 locations. Zaxby's 500th location opened in Tifton, Georgia the summer of 2010. The first Zaxby's was opened in Statesboro, Georgia, near the Georgia Southern University campus, by Zach McLeroy and Tony Townley. Their menu is built around 'chicken fingers', sandwiches with fries, and salads (i.e., 'zalads'). It follows in the footsteps of another chicken fingers-based restaurant: Guthrie's, in 1978, in Alabama. Zaxby's offers a wide variety of dipping sauces, such as the 'original Zax Sauce'. Coca-Cola's brands of soft drinks are served, as well. The dining rooms at Zaxby's restaurants are decorated with assorted whimsical objects and posters, which often vary in theme by location and which occasionally are regionally aware.
