ARBY’S CONTINUES GROWTH IN WICHITA OPENS NEW “INSPIRE” RESTAURANT TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18

Wichita , Kansas, Tuesday, October 11, 2016:

United States Beef Corporation (US Beef), Arby’s largest franchisee, headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of its newest Arby’s restaurant in Wichita, Kansas on Tuesday, October 18, at 10:00am, In South Fork Shopping Center, off Highway 135 and the Turnpike at the 47th Street South exit.

Arby’s newly constructed restaurant will occupy 2,830 square feet, with comfortable, full service seating for 56 guests, and a convenient drive thru for guests on the go, employing approximately 40 full and part-time workers.

From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., guests will be able to spin the Arby’s prize wheel to win free food and other Arby’s branded prizes.

US Beef Chief Executive Officer, John Davis, is excited once again to open another Arby’s in Wichita, with its unique brand of meatcraft™, saying, “Arby’s loves Wichita. This beautiful new location is our 25th Arby’s restaurant in the Wichita-Hutchinson market area and our 11th in Wichita metro. When our guests have a craving for the deli-style sandwiches only Arby’s can bring to the table, we want to be convenient. We’ll also be remodeling 4 of our restaurants in Wichita in 2017, converting them to the new Arby’s “Inspire” architectural design.”

On that new Arby’s “Inspire” architectural design, Davis was equally exuberant, saying “The Grand Opening is also a proud moment to showcase our newest “Inspire” construction on the exterior and interior of the restaurant. If you’re familiar with other Arby’s, you’ll notice at first glance that this Arby’s restaurant has a fresh, new color palette, and strong geometric shapes and elements. You’ll experience from the moment you pull into our parking lot a reinvigorated Arby’s look and feel that not only reflects our brand’s 52 year brand evolution, but our commitment to being Wichita’s modern day “meatcrafter”.”

On the interior of the restaurant, Davis said, “When you walk into our dining area, you’ll experience new, authentic textures, multicolor wood materials, modern lighting, and chalkboard graphics. Quite simply, it’s a very easy, relaxed, and fun dining experience. We’re also continuing to add more variety, originality, and freshness to our sandwich menu as well, from our world famous, thinly sliced roast beef to our new lip smacking lineup of Smokehouse sandwiches. And don’t forget the Arby’s sauce.”

Aside from focusing on form, function, and guest comfort, Arby’s new restaurant will also feature state of the art Energy Star compliant food service equipment, with extensive LED lighting technology.
