Zaxby's set for Monday opening in Shelbyville

Zaxby’s, a casual restaurant that serves grilled and fried chicken with a wide variety of special sauces, arrives in Shelbyville September 27.


Franchise owner for Zaxby’s Shelbyville restaurant is Barred Rock, LLC, of Fishers, which also owns two Zaxby’s in Greenwood and one in Fishers. Barred Rock CEO Jeff Furlin says Shelbyville’s Zaxby’s is hiring 35 people, boosting to 100 the number of employees in the company’s four Central Indiana Zaxby’s.


Furlin obtained financing from the U.S. Small Business Administration’s 504 loan program to build the Shelbyville Zaxby’s. Lake City Bank and Indiana Statewide Certified Development Corporation provided the SBA 504 loan.


Indiana Statewide CDC works with local Indiana lenders to issue SBA 504 loans to help owners of expanding or startup small businesses buy real estate, buildings and equipment. SBA 504 loans offers small business owners long-term, fixed rate financing similar to commercial loan terms available for large companies.


Zaxby’s currently has over 900 restaurants in the U.S.
