Beloved chicken brand grows its presence in Shelby Co. with newest location on Dec. 11
Saucy chicken chain Zaxby’s is introducing its newest restaurant design to the East Memphis community with its to-go-only concept. The new Zaxby’s is owned and operated by Memphis Foods, LLC, and will open for to-go-only service on Monday, Dec. 11 at 436 Perkins Ext.
“We’re thrilled to serve both new and loyal Zaxby’s guests with our first ever Zaxby’s location in the East Memphis neighborhood,” said Jeremy Gattie of Memphis Foods, LLC. “With the opening of our 10th store in Shelby County and two more in the planning phase, this marks a significant chapter in our journey. Serving East Memphis has been a longtime goal of ours and the excitement is shared by all who have played a part in making it a reality.”
Boasting approximately 2,400 square feet, Zaxby’s new to-go-only location offers expedited service with a double drive-thru layout, new digital menu boards, a payment window, as well as a drive-thru delivery door for faster pay and pickup. The new design also includes a walk-up window for guests to place take-out orders. The restaurant does not offer indoor seating, catering to the heightened consumer demand for food-to-go, which is expected to increase in the coming years.
For even faster service, customers may also order delivery directly through the Zaxby’s app available for download on Google Play and the App Store, as well as via DoorDash, UberEats and Grubhub at this location. Order ahead and curbside pickup will also be available soon through Zaxbys.com or the Zaxby’s app.
Zaxby’s serves fresh, prepared-at-order Chicken Fingerz and wings tossed in a variety of bold and spicy sauces. The menu features the wildly popular Fried Chicken Philly limited-time offer, Zaxby’s fan-favorite Fried Pickles and its most recently added LTO – Chicken Parm Loaded Fries. The new menu item starts with Zaxby’s crispy, crinkle-cut fries, topped with its signature hand-breaded chicken and parmesan cheese. The dish is then drizzled with garlic aioli and marinara sauce to give it a rich and savory flavor. The snackable delicacy is still available at participating locations until Jan. 8, 2024.
The franchisee contracted local, Memphis-based company Dimension Construction to build the new restaurant. The new location is offering over 40 new employment opportunities to the East Memphis community. Interested applicants may visit workthecoop.com to apply for all available positions.
Founded in 1990, Zaxby’s is committed to serving delicious chicken fingers, wings, sandwiches and salads with Southern hospitality and a modern twist. Zaxby’s iconic Fried Pickles were selected to USA Today’s 2023 10Best Fast Food Sides List. Zaxby’s has grown to more than 900 locations in 17 states and is headquartered in Athens, Georgia.
