Third Zaxby's to open near St. Joseph East

Zaxby's, the fast-food chicken restaurant, plans to open its third Lexington location later this spring at the corner of Man o' War Boulevard and Richmond Road.

The restaurant will be on Sand Lake Drive, across from Saint Joseph East.

The other Lexington locations are at 1772 Sharkey Way, off Leestown Road, and 531 West New Circle across from Wal-Mart.

Franchisees Michael and Wayne Martin have an agreement to open eight locations in Lexington over the next few years.

There are 11 Zaxby's so far in Kentucky and more than 470 through an 11-state footprint concentrated in the southeast.
