The first Zaxby's was established in Statesboro, Georgia, near the Georgia
Southern University campus, by childhood friends Zach McLeroy and Tony
Townley. The company operates as a casual dining restaurant, offering
prepared-at-order chicken fingers, chicken wings, sandwiches, salads, and
appetizers. Dipping sauces are offered with chicken finger orders, and
range from mild, to the moderate ''Zax sauce'', to the intensely hot
''Nuclear'' and ''Insane''. Dining rooms at Zaxby's restaurants are decorated
with assorted whimsical objects and signs, which often vary in theme by
location and region. Some locations in college towns feature objects and
decorations related to the local university. Similarly, citrus-industry
themed decorations line the walls at an Orlando, Florida location.
Since the December 2013 announcement that Zaxby's would begin to offer the
Coca-Cola Freestyle machine at their locations, the decor in the fountain
drink dispensing area has been dominated by that distinctive dispenser and
other Coca-Cola branding.
