You might say this company is all about zee chicken. Zaxby’s Franchising operates and franchises more than 490 fast-casual Zaxby’s chicken restaurants in about a dozen southern states, mostly in Georgia. Its kitschy, memorabilia-themed restaurants offer creatively named chicken dishes, such as Chicken Fingerz, Zalads, Big Zax Snak Meal, Zappetizers, and Buffalo Fingerz with Zax sauce. The chain also serves chicken with other types of sauces named for their spiciness threshold, from Wimpy to Nuclear to Insane. About 70 locations are company-owned, while the rest are franchised. CEO Zach McLeroy and CFO Tony Townley started the chain in 1990.
