Arby’s Sets Aim on Venison after Conquering Smoke Mountain, Meat Mountain and Pork Belly

Select Restaurants in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania,
Tennessee and Georgia to offer thick-cut Venison Sandwich as deer
hunting season opens

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the more than 20 Million hunters across America, the arrival of fall
means Meats Season is finally here. And no restaurant understands Meats
Season better than Arby’s, which is why the Fast Crafted® sandwich brand
will release a Venison Sandwich in popular hunting markets beginning in
early November.

The Venison Sandwich at Arby’s features a thick-cut venison steak and
crispy onions topped with a juniper berry sauce on a toasted specialty
roll. The venison is marinated in garlic, salt and pepper and then
cooked for three hours to juicy, tender perfection. The juniper berry
sauce is a Cabernet steak sauce infused with juniper berries, giving the
already unique sandwich another signature twist.

“Hunters hunt the meats, and we have the meats, so it makes sense for us
to connect with them and offer a sandwich that they can’t get at any
other restaurant chain,” said Rob Lynch, Chief Marketing Officer and
Brand President of Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. “We’re a brand that’s
not afraid to take risks and while the Venison sandwich is probably the
biggest stretch for us yet, it’s incredibly delicious and we can’t wait
to get it in the hands of our guests. You won’t leave a hunt
empty-handed after stopping by Arby’s.”

The Venison Sandwich will be offered at 17 Arby’s restaurants across
America, each within heavy deer hunting areas in the states of
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Georgia.
