Fast Food Arby's
Forrest and Leroy Raffel started their food-service consulting firm, Raffel Brothers Inc., in the 1950s but were soon thinking about starting their own restaurant. In 1964, the first Arby's opened in Boardman, Ohio with a menu of roast beef sandwiches, drinks and chips. Eventually other sandwiches, French fries, meals for kids and light choices were added to the menu. Now, with over 3,700 restaurants, Arby's fast food franchise is one of the few top 10 restaurant brands across the US and Canada that currently has opportunities to grow in almost every market.
Arby's features a unique menu with above average selections - from our thinly sliced roast beef to our delicious Market Fresh® line of sandwiches, salads, and wraps. We strive to be food innovators in the industry and continue to offer unique menu selections, a welcoming dining atmosphere, and an overall experience that is authentic, exceptional, and real.
