United States Beef Corporation (US Beef), Arby's largest franchisee, headquartered in Tulsa, Okla., announces the grand opening of its newest Arby's restaurant in Delta Wednesday, Dec. 7, at 10 a.m. Arby's is located in the building formerly occupied by Kentucky Fried Chicken on the northwest corner of Highway 50 and Confluence Drive.
Arby's newly remodeled restaurant will occupy 2,960 square feet, with comfortable, full service seating for 72 guests, and a convenient drive thru for guests on the go, employing approximately 40 full and part-time workers.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, 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 to bring Arby's unique brand of meatcraft™ to the table in Delta, saying, "Personally, this is my favorite kind of grand opening. When we bring an Arby's into a town that's never had an Arby's, it's just a special moment when we open our doors that first time. Customers have seen the TV commercials, and heard that booming voice of Ving Rhames exclaim, 'We Have the Meats,' but have been unable to get them. But now that we're opening, the commercials come alive and those delicious deli-style sandwiches are just down the street. We have a feeling it's going to be love at first bite here in Delta, and the menu is diverse enough to satisfy everybody's tastes."
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 Delta'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 buttermilk chicken sandwiches, as well as a new lineup of Angus steak sandwiches. And yes, there's always plenty of Arby's and Horsey 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.
Arby's, founded in 1964, is the first nationally franchised sandwich restaurant brand.
