Zack Whaley, known by many as the owner of Zack’s Family Restaurant, was named Tuesday as the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce’s small business person of the year.

“In a nutshell, I’m just elated we won and it just proves hard working people can win sometimes,” Whaley said. “It’s really been a blessing to us.”

Zack’s is well known for its southern home cooking. Whaley has been in the restaurant business for more than 20 years, opening his first restaurant at what he referred to as the old icehouse in Cottonwood. The building has since been torn down, and has been replaced by a Dollar General store.
