Louisville’s Second Zaxby’s Hatches



Licensee Steve Brewer will open the doors to Louisville’s second Zaxby’s restaurant this Monday. The new restaurant is located at 5025 Mud Lane, near the Hillview Kroger. A Southeast favorite for chicken fingers and Buffalo wings, Zaxby’s will operate from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day.

“Louisville has shown great support for Zaxby’s over the last few years, and we are excited to open in the Hillview/Shepardsville area,” said Brewer, who also owns the current Louisville location in Middletown and an additional location in Shelbyville, Ky. “We’ve built our reputation and loyal following in this community by providing excellent service and great-tasting food, and we plan to carry on that tradition with this new, convenient location.”

The new 3,370-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.

Brewer 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 Brewer.

The new location will be the second for Jefferson County, and the 19th for the Bluegrass State.

Zaxby’s currently operates more than 555 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 Jumbo Buffalo 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 Milkshakes at participating locations, which come in chocolate, strawberry and vanilla flavors. They are rich and creamy, hand-blended, and are topped with whipped cream.
