Richmond Hill’s first Zaxby’s restaurant was set to open its doors at 10:30 a.m. Monday at 80 Exchange St.
The new location will be the first for Bryan County and the 197th for Georgia. Zaxby’s currently operates more than 540 locations in 12 states.
The 3,300-square-foot location will seat 72 customers, including outdoor covered seating. Zaxby’s will also offer drive-thru services.
Licensee Craig Jones said he wanted to bring Zaxby’s to the area after recognizing the new business potential Richmond Hill has to offer.
“I feel Richmond Hill is the perfect place to expand the Zaxby’s brand, and I’m excited to be a part of such a wonderful community,” said Jones, who also owns a Zaxby’s in Savannah. “I am confident that the same quality of food and service Zaxby’s is known for will keep area residents coming back for more.”
Sofie Davis will serve as the new restaurant’s area development manager.
Some of Zaxby’s most popular items include chicken “fingerz” and jumbo buffalo wings, as well as “Zappetizers,” like tater chips, spicy fried mushrooms and fried white cheddar bites.
Weekly hours of operation will be 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.
