ATHENS, GA. – Zaxby’s, a fast-casual chicken chain, promoted Keith Anderkin to the newly created position of chief supply chain officer. 

In June 2020, Anderkin began at Zaxby’s as vice president of supply chain and quality assurance.  

“My goal is to help lay the foundation for a world-class supply chain that will sustain Zaxby’s mission for years to come to support growth and help establish Zaxby’s as a franchisor of choice,” Anderkin said.

While working at Zaxby’s, Anderkin started the development of new stores along with management of various categories. Anderkin also led the supply chain for Zaxby’s during the COVID-19 pandemic as consumer behaviors began to change throughout the last 18 months.

Anderkin previously worked at several quick-service restaurant brands including Long John Silver’s, Arby’s and Fazoli’s.

“Keith always shows up as a servant leader and is a very positive influence within the organization, constantly striving to develop and mentor his team,” said David Waters chief operating officer for Zaxby’s. “His ability to foster relationships with vendors and franchisees is key to maintaining the culture of Zaxby’s brand.”
