Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. has been named to FORTUNE’s 100 Best Workplaces for Women list. Arby’s is the highest-ranked restaurant brand on the list and is the only quick-service restaurant selected.

This is the first time Arby’s has been named to the list and follows Arby’s recent announcement of being named by FORTUNE as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials.

“We’ve worked hard to build a culture that’s centered on hospitality and innovation,” said Paul Brown, Chief Executive Officer of ARG. “We strive to promote values like Make a Difference, Play Fair, and Dream Big, which helps to create a work environment that is equitable and inclusive to all of our diverse workforce.”

Today, ARG’s workforce of 25,000 team members is 60 percent women. The company’s Product Innovation, Human Resources, and Information Technology functions are each led by women executives.

“Arby’s is an organization where, regardless of your age or gender or ethnicity, you can grow and succeed,” said Melissa Strait, Chief People Officer of ARG. “Recognitions like this affirm that we’re making a real impact.”
