Suit filed in Jacksonville against Jimmy John's, alleging unfair labor practices

(ATLANTA BUSINESS CHRONICLE) -- A federal class action lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Jacksonville, Fla., against Jimmy John's, alleging that the sandwich chain illegally underpaid assistant store managers throughout the country.

According to the complaint, "Regardless of the number of hours worked, Jimmy John's fails to pay [assistant store managers] any overtime compensation."

The chain has 24 metro Atlanta stores.

The company requires assistant store managers to perform food preparation and provide customer service as their primary duty, but classifies them as "executives" exempt from the overtime pay provisions, the lawsuit alleges.

Zaxby's named America's most craveable chain

Zaxby's named America's most craveable chain

(WXIA) -- Zaxby's has been named America's "Most Craveable Fast Casual" restaurant for the second year in a row.

The Athens-based chicken chain received the honor from Technomic, a market research firm that focuses on the restaurant industry.

Technomic measures more than 60 elements of a guest's experience to determine the rankings. Zaxby's craveability can be attributed to its popular Chicken Fingerz and dipping sauces, especially the signautre Zax Sauce.

"We are continuously looking for new experiences and flavors to provide our guests, but it's also exciting for us to know that some of our very first menu items are still fan favorites to this day," Zaxby's CEO and co-founder Zach McLeory said. "We're delighted to know our guests have ranked us the most craveable for a second year, and will endlessly strive to provide them with exceptional flavors they can't get anywhere else."
