Inside Bulloch Business with DeWayne Grice - Co-founders come 'home' to open new Zaxby's
Zaxbys Lead Web
Zaxby's founders Zach McLeroy, center, and Tony Townley, center right, are surrounded by local dignitaries and hungry students as they christen their newest restaurant on Chandler Rd. Monday.
On March 27, 1990, Zach McLeroy and Tony Townley opened their first Zaxby's restaurant just 83 steps from where Statesboro's newest Zaxby's now sits. Twenty five years and three days later, Zach and Tony sat down with me to discuss this incredible ride and to reminisce about the journey. Hundreds of Zaxby's "fanatics" waited in line overnight to be one of the first to eat at the new Zaxby's.
