Zaxby's chicken restaurant announced Monday morning that it will be permanently closing its location in Osage Beach. 

In a statement from a Zaxby's spokeperson:

"On March 1, we, Mizzou Chicken, Inc., local owner and operator of the Zaxby’s at 4828 Osage Beach Parkway, will be closing our doors. It was a difficult decision, but ultimately we decided to redirect our business efforts due to challenging market conditions and restaurant performance. To our fanz and employees, thank you for giving us the opportunity to be part of the Osage Beach community for over three years. If you have any questions, please contact 866-8-ZAXBYS (866-892-9297)."
