The Zaxby’s chicken restaurant on Auburn Avenue in Columbus is set to open 10:30 a.m. Monday.
The 70-seat eatery is situated adjacent to Cross Country Plaza between Country’s Barbecue and Cici’s Pizza and employs more than 30 people.
This is the fourth Zaxby’s for David Young, a franchisee and part of an operating partnership that includes Columbus real-estate veteran Dick Norman.
The group also operates outlets on U.S. Hwy. 280 in Phenix City and on Schomburg Road in Columbus, as well as one in Alexander City, Ala. Two other Zaxby’s in Columbus are run by a separate franchisee.
Young also has a license for another Columbus location and is searching for a site, he has said, with the Victory Drive area in south Columbus on his radar.
