With construction nearly finished, the first Zaxby’s in King is coming soon to 212 Ingram Road, across from Walmart. A fan favorite for chicken fingers and wings, the new fast-casual restaurant is scheduled to open later next month and will celebrate the grand opening by giving away a deck of 52 Free Dealz — meaning a free item at Zaxby’s each week for a year — to the first 100 guests.
“We are excited to welcome Zaxby’s to King’s business community. Many citizens have expressed excitement for another food option here, and we look forward to their involvement in our City. Their presence here will help to encourage people to spend their dollars here instead of traveling elsewhere, and that benefits everyone,” said King City Manager, Homer Dearmin.
This will be the fifth Zaxby’s store for licensee Sam Mahalingam.
“I had been a regular Zaxby’s guest for nearly 10 years when I realized I needed to open my own restaurant, and that was four locations ago,” said Mahalingam, owner of the new location. “From the very beginning, I was very impressed with the company from a business perspective and felt like the growing community of King was the perfect fit.”
The King location will be the first store for Stokes County. Zaxby’s currently operates in 17 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia.
Zaxby’s provides chicken fingers, wings, sandwiches, salads and more in a fun, relaxing atmosphere. Zaxby’s is a pioneer of the fast-casual format, providing services and amenities that fall somewhere between fast food and a sit-down restaurant. At the new restaurant, customers will place their orders at the counter and will be called to pick up their prepared-at-order meals when they are ready.
With seating for 72, the 3,600-square-foot farmhouse-style location reflects Zaxby’s commitment to providing an exceptional fast-casual dining experience, with redesigned exteriors, dining areas and kitchens. Point-of-sale and other improvements will further enhance food quality and increase speed of service.
“We’re currently seeking a team of more than 40 members from the local King area,” said Mahalingam. “We want a staff that truly embodies the Zaxby’s brand by providing customers with a great quality product and unmatched customer service.” Interested candidates can apply at the Walkertown Zaxby’s located at 5211 Walkertown Commons Circle.
