Arby's® has announced a strategy to re-franchise company-owned locations in select markets nationwide. Yet, we plan to retain a healthy percentage of company-owned units and continue to invest in our brand. So why consider re-franchising with us?
- After being acquired in 2011 by private-equity firm Roark Capital Group, Roark has since assembled for Arby's® a new Board of Directors comprised of seasoned franchise and restaurant executives and led by Chairman Jon Luther, a veteran of the restaurant industry credited, most recently, for leading the transformation of Dunkin Brands®.
- Arby's has experienced two straight years of same store sales growth. Arby's is a widely recognized brand with untapped potential and opportunities for growth.
- In the time since Arby's® became a private company, we've made significant investments in all facets of the business, from research and development of new products to operations and advertising/marketing. Arby's also announced the development of a new prototype building design.
- Arby's is a company with a heart. Last year alone, Arby's Foundation (the company's 25-year-old- charitable arm), raised $2.2 million for Share our Strength® and the No Kid Hungry® Campaign to end childhood hunger in America.
