Up to 30% of sales generated at 17 local participating stores during campaign to benefit Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina
MORRISVILLE, N.C. (August 7, 2013)—Beginning August 12th, 17 area Zaxby’s stores will host “Cause Card Week” to benefit Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina. Up to 30% of sales generated during the 10-day campaign will help grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Customers who dine at local participating Zaxby’s during the promotional period will have 10% of their bill donated. Each time a customer returns to Zaxby’s and makes a subsequent purchase between August 12 and August 21, the donation will increase by 10%, with a maximum of 30%. Participating Zaxby’s locations include Cary, Clayton, Durham, Erwin, Fayetteville, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Goldsboro, Hope Mills, Knightdale, Lillington, Lumberton, North Raleigh, Raleigh, Rocky Mount, Smithfield, and the newest location in Wake Forest.
“We are proud of our partnership with Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina,” said Franchise Owner Tom Little. “Through the years our stores have donated dinners or sponsored numerous events to help local families who have experienced a wish. The Cause Card program provides an opportunity for us to increase this support to help more families throughout our communities.”
“Our chapter is extremely grateful for the numerous contributions from Zaxby’s over the years,” said Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina President & CEO Kristen Johnson. “Without their support, we would not be able to grant almost 200 wishes during the past year.”
An alternative to fast food, Zaxby’s offers its guests prepared-at-order Chicken Fingerz, Jumbo Buffalo Wings, sandwiches, Zalads and Zappetizers, along with a variety of nine sauces ranging from Wimpy and Tongue Torch to Nuclear and Insane. Childhood friends Zach McLeroy and Tony Townley hatched the Athens, Ga.-based chain in 1990 to provide a fun, relaxing atmosphere that would keep guests coming back for more. Zaxby’s operates more than 530 locations in 12 states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
