Zaxby’s, a national restaurant with over 900 locations, will be coming to Columbia. The restaurant offers chicken fingers, salads, and sandwiches. They currently have locations in Glasgow, Somerset, Danville, and Bowling Green.
The first Zaxby’s was started in Statesboro, Georgia, in 1990, by two friends Tony Townley and Zach McLeroy. The first location outside of Georgia came four years later and was in Bowling Green, Kentucky. In 2013, they started locations in Utah, the first outside of the southeastern United States. In 2019, they had locations in seventeen different states.
Zaxby's is planning a ground-breaking within the next few weeks. More details will be available later.
“We welcome Zaxby’s to Columbia,” said Pamela Hoots, Mayor.
