Zaxby’s is now taking applications online for its Tupelo location.
It’s scheduled to open Aug. 21
The store will be the eighth location for franchisee Oxford Foods, which was founded in 2005. The other restaurants under its umbrella includes Batesville, Hernando, Horn Lake, New Albany, Olive Branch, Oxford and Snowden Grove.
The store is in the Tupelo Crossroads development at the corner of North Gloster and Barnes Crossing Road, which is currently home to Aspen Dental, Which Wich and Pyro’s Pizza. A BankPlus branch will be built in the development as well.
The chicken chain’s Tupelo store will have a capacity of 106 people, based on blueprints submitted to the City Planning Department. It will cover more than 3,800-square-feet. Construction value of the restaurant is estimated at $1.1 million.
