Welcome to the Arby’s® Discovery Process!
Thank you for your interest in the Arby’s Franchise Opportunity. We have created an online experience for you to determine if you are ready to join the Arby’s family as a new franchisee. The tour is intended to:
Arby’s opened its first store in Boardman (near Youngstown), OH in 1964, but the idea was actually started on Halloween of 1963 in Boston. This is where Leroy and Forrest Raffel discovered the idea to operate a fast food chain that sold Roast Beef sandwiches. In fact, most people think the name Arby’s was derived from the word roast beef, but it is actually an abbreviation for the initials R.B’s, short for Raffel Brothers. From these humble beginnings, Arby’s has continued to grow through the decades and we currently have over 3,500 stores in the US and Canada.
Our ideal candidate, or someone in their partnership, will have prior management level experience in food service and/or restaurant operations. Other relevant retail experience will be considered. We offer single and mult-unit development agreements.
Key Attributes Include:
Each new franchise entity must have $500,000 in liquid assets. This can be met individually or in combination with partners. Qualified liquid assets include, cash, stocks, notes receivable, retirement accounts, and a portion of real estate equity.
