MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A new Zaxby’s restaurant could be coming to Midtown Memphis.

The development could, however, be forcing dozens of people out of their homes.

Residents living in the Union Place Apartments near East Parkway have been given 30 days to leave.

While the plans are not final, Zaxby’s has received a permit to build at the same address.

Some owners are not happy about the decision.

“More people need a place to live other than eating food, you know, going to a restaurant,” she said. “People need to live. We love this place!”

Residents need to be out by February 15.
