Zaxby’s to open new Kannapolis location Monday

A new Zaxby’s is opening today in Kannapolis and will host a grand opening this morning.

Located at 6044 Glen Afton Blvd., the restaurant chain is giving away a “Fanatic Pack of 52 Free Dealz,” or a free item at Zaxby’s every week for a year, to the first 100 guests. According to the company, guests must be in line by 10 a.m. for the chance to win.

The store will be open 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday.

“As a growing, tight-knit community, Kannapolis is exactly the type of market that fits Zaxby’s expansion model,” J.J. DeRoy, director of market development for the new Zaxby’s location, said in a statement.

Athens, Ga.-based Zaxby’s, known for its chicken fingers and wings, operates more than 680 locations in 16 states.
