Zaxby’s opening new store in Knoxville

KNOXVILLE — With construction nearing completion, the newest Zaxby’s location in Knoxville is coming soon to 5567 Clinton Highway. A fan favorite for chicken fingers and wings, the new fast-casual restaurant is scheduled to open in July 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.

“This will be the eighth Zaxby’s location that I’ve had the privilege of opening,” said Chris Andrews, licensee of the new store. “The people in Knoxville have always been so supportive of Zaxby’s and they deserve to have another convenient option to visit. Our goal is to continue to offer the same great quality service and product that residents have come to know and love.”

With inside seating for 90, the newly built 3,847-square-foot location will reflect Zaxby’s farmhouse design. Highlighting the brand’s commitment to its guests’ overall dining experience, the layout offers guests a high-end, fast-casual experience, with redesigned exteriors, dining areas and kitchens. Additionally, the variety of seating options accommodates a range of group sizes, and Wi-Fi keeps guests connected.

“We are still looking to hire over 50 team members from the local community to fill various positions at this newly built location,” said Andrews. “Our goal is to find employees who believe in the brand and want to continue to help us deliver on our promise to serve a quality experience with every visit.” Interested candidates can visit to apply.

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.

An alternative to fast food, Zaxby’s offers prepared-at-order chicken fingers, wings, sandwiches and salads. Zaxby’s most popular items are its hand-breaded Chicken Fingerz and Traditional or Boneless Wings, smothered in a choice of nine sauces with names like Wimpy, Tongue Torch, Nuclear and Insane. The menu also offers innovative Zappetizers like Tater Chips, Spicy Fried Mushrooms and Fried White Cheddar Bites, as well as a variety of Party Platterz perfect for any family gathering or special occasion.

Knoxville Zaxby’s guests will enjoy the Coca-Cola Company’s proprietary drink fountain, Coca-Cola Freestyle.The sleek, stylish fountain is touchscreen operated, enabling guests to select from more than 100 regular and low-calorie brands — including many varieties of waters, sports drinks, lemonades and sparkling beverages that were not available in the U.S. prior to the arrival of Coca-Cola Freestyle.

Zaxby’s also offers four salads, or Zalads: The House, The Blue, The Caesar and The Cobb. All of Zaxby’s Zalads are prepared with chicken, three kinds of lettuce, interesting ingredients — such as French-fried onions — fresh veggies and juicy tomatoes, and are larger than most salads served elsewhere. Zalads are assembled at the time the order is placed, versus being pre-made and stored in a cooler.

Additionally, Zaxby’s offers a line of premium milkshakes, including the Birthday Cake, the Banana Pudding and the Chocolate Cookie flavors. They are rich and creamy, hand-blended, and are topped with whipped cream.
