Zaxby’s prepares to spread its wings on Ft. Benning


With construction nearing completion, the first Zaxby’s location on Fort Benning is coming soon to 7290 Ingersoll Street. 

A fan favorite for chicken fingers and wings, the new fast-casual restaurant is scheduled to open later this month.  

“This will be the first Zaxby’s restaurant developed on a military installation,” said Al Gelineau, Fort Benning Director of Family and Morale, Welfare & Recreation. “This is one of only a handful of public/private restaurants on military bases, and we are thrilled to bring this new option to Fort Benning soldiers and families.” 

The new restaurant will be the first to serve Fort Benning’s military installations and the 230th for the state of Georgia. 

“A Fort Benning survey was done on base asking soldiers and their families what restaurants that they would like to see move in, and Zaxby’s was a clear winner,” Gelineau said. 

Zaxby’s currently operates in 16 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia.
