Zaxby’s set to open in Mechanicsville on May 6

HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - Hanover County will welcome its first Zaxby’s location with a grand opening on Monday, May 6 at 6535 Mechanicsville Turnpike.

The location will serve 55 guests and feature a farm-house style interior design with brick walls and rustic lamps.

Restaurant co-owner and operator, Jon Garner, grew up in the far west end of Henrico County and moved to Hanover specifically so he could be a part of the community his restaurant serves. He will run the restaurant with his parents and business partners, Debbie and Ian Garner.

"I was first introduced to Zaxby’s while in college at Georgia Southern before transferring and finishing at Radford University, and knew from the start I wanted to open one of my own one day,” Garner said.

This restaurant will provide about 60 jobs in the area.

Garner is already planning a second location in Hanover.
