How can we begin to describe a journey that has been... well, indescribable? It started innocently enough.

Two boyhood friends had the idea to give wings and fingers a shot at the big time - promoting them from appetizers to entrees. So Zach and Tony rubbed two nickels together and opened a restaurant in the college town of Statesboro, GA. The food was great. And the response was even greater. Before long, there was so much demand for Zaxby’s restaurants, they had to franchise just to keep up. Besides, in their heart of hearts, they wanted to help other people own their own business too. They set up their headquarters in Athens, GA and began serving their licensee family with the same attitude that had made them a hit with customers. The rest, as they say, is Hiztory.

Owning a Zaxby's is a little like joining a family without changing your last name. (If that sounds creepy, well, you have your relatives to blame.) Because to us, being part of the Zaxby's family means having access to some of the best support in the foodservice business. We began as a family, building a local brand in the community. And now our family includes cousins, and sisters, and grand-children who are carrying on the tradition in communities across several states. Just like it was when we started, our mission is to consistently create encore experiences that enrich lives one person at a time. The more things change the more they remain the same.

As a Zaxby’s Franchisee you will operate as an independent franchise business, but you will benefit from being a part of a Brand that has exhibited steady growth and success in a wide range of markets across the Southeast. 

You will be provided with a detailed set of operating manuals as well as extensive marketing materials.  ZFL currently holds an annual conference and assigns to each franchisee an operations consultant.

Zaxby’s will provide support that includes real estate guidance and architectural construction and engineering assistance.

We require a $1Million net worth and a minimum of $500,000 liquidity in order to open a Zaxby's restaurant.
