The tendy competition in St. Pete is heating up.

On Monday, June 12 at 10 a.m., St. Pete’s very first Zaxby’s will open its doors at 3700 34th St. S, to the delight of Zax sauce-lovers across The ‘Burg.

Giveaways or grand opening festivities aren't planned for next week’s debut yet, although more event details could be released on Zaxby’s Facebook page.

In addition to its beloved trifecta of chicken tenders, Zax sauce and a fat slice of toast, Zaxby’s also dishes out loaded fries,  fried white cheddar bites, chicken wings, salads, fried pickles and a variety of chicken sandwiches.

St. Pete's Zaxby's is heading to its Skyway Marina District, a booming part of town where national chains like Wawa and Starbucks have recently opened outposts.

The other only Zaxby’s locations in the county reside at 7520 Belcher Rd. in Pinellas Park and 8585 Ulmerton Rd. in Largo.  If St. Pete's location boasts the same hours as its northern neighbors, it will be open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. daily.

There are over 600 locations of the Georgia-based chain across the country, with over a hundred Zaxby's locations in Florida alone.
