From Big Heap of Rubble to A Future Zaxby's

The old Dairy Queen structure on S. Hairston is now a memory. After the site is cleared, Zaxby's plans to build a new restaurant.

On Monday a heavy equipment operator lifted the remaining scraps of the old Dairy Queen on S. Hairston, which once served up ice cream and lunch fare, into a big pile.

With the demolition of DQ, Zaxby's -- known for its chicken fare and "Zalads"-- plans to move into the 30088 ZIP code, possibly by early next year.

Back in September, TJ McLeroy, chief operating officer of McLeroy's/JGMC.McDreams Enterprises, Inc., a licensee of Zaxby's Franchising, Inc., told Patch the restaurant would employ about 35-50 people.

The 74-seat Zaxby's will have a drive-through window and be 3,195 gross square feet.
