The venison sandwich will now be available nationwide starting Oct. 21.
ATLANTA—Arby’s restaurants will once again put the venison sandwich on the menu only this time it will be offered nationwide after a successful run last fall.
The sandwich hits restaurants Oct. 21 and will be available while supplies last.
The sandwich features a thick-cut venison steak topped with onions and juniper berry sauce served on a specialty roll. The venison is marinated in garlic, salt and pepper and cooked for three hours.
“The positive response to our limited offering of venison last year was so widespread and passionate that we knew we had to find a way to offer it nationwide,” said Jim Taylor, chief marketing officer of Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. “On Oct. 21, we want hunters and meat enthusiasts across the country to visit their local Arby’s and enjoy this amazing sandwich. It’s a perfect example of the level of innovation coming from our teams and our commitment to creating experiences that guests can only get at Arby’s.”
As an extension to its game offerings, Arby’s also announced it will offer an elk sandwich in three restaurants in the popular elk-hunting states of Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. The sandwich features a tender elk steak topped with blackberry port steak sauce and onions on a specialty roll.
