    How can a worldwide chain (BK) compete with a primarily Southeasten chain (Zaxby’s, with higher price points, to boot)? Illogical!

    I am a missionary serving in Guatemala central America and everytime I travel to the US, I have to have myself Zaxby’s. If I am in town (Raleigh, NC) for more than a month I have Zaxby’s at least once a week! I love me some Zaxby’s!!!
