Athens, GA – based Zaxby’s has reached a 2-year agreement with 25 of the largest southern and Midwest Colleges and Universities to sponsor the schools’ football and basketball teams.

According to a company press release, “Being The Official Chicken of College Sports is a monumental partnership that allows us to support the colleges and towns that have continued to support us,” said Zach McLeroy, CEO and cofounder of Zaxby’s. “We opened our very first Zaxby’s in a college town and today, we have nearly 600 locations. I can’t think of a better association to have than one that keeps us true to our roots and links us with fine college sports teams across our footprint.”
