ATLANTA – Arby’s announced it will start serving its limited-edition Seared Duck Breast Sandwich on Oct. 20 in select locations.
The duck breast, which is sourced from Maple Leaf Farms, Leesburg, Indiana, is seared, cooked Sous Vide and topped with onions and smoked cherry sauce on a toasted bun.
The quick-service restaurant said in a press release it will only be serving the duck sandwich at 16 locations. Arby’s is putting the sandwiches in “waterfowl migration flyways” in four different areas of the US (Atlantic, Central, Mississippi and Pacific). The company said it picked locations that were close to actual duck hunting locations.
Last fall Arby’s served venison and elk sandwiches in various restaurants during hunting season.
“Many of our guests enjoy hunting, so we launched the ‘It’s Meats Season’ campaign a couple of years ago behind our Venison Sandwich,” said Jim Taylor, chief marketing officer for Arby’s. “As a nod to our duck-hunting guests, we are proud to offer this amazing Seared Duck Breast sandwich to a limited number of markets within the major fowl flyways.”
The first 10 guests who order the sandwich at each location will also receive an Arby’s duck hunting camouflage hat.
