Company Description


Arby’s, founded in 1964, is the second-largest sandwich restaurant brand in the world with thousands of locations in seven countries. CEO Paul Brown leads Inspire Brands, the new parent company formed when private equity firm Roark Capital bought Buffalo Wild Wings and R Taco.

The fast-food chain has had a big presence in television advertising and is well known for snarky social media marketing such as tweeting at celebrities during award shows. A large remodeling initiative is still in progress, giving Arby’s locations a cleaner, sleeker look, and recently added menu options include a “traditional gyro” and a venison sandwich.

Arby’s has also recently committed to becoming more energy efficient by reducing energy costs, installing Energy Star-certified gas fryers in many of its locations, and testing out smart kitchen technologies that track, monitor, and adjust performance of equipment.
