- The picture of the Arbys roast beef on the right is not what most look like... they are much more well prepared and look so much more appetizing!
On the Wiki page it says the biggest Arbys in the world was built in Colonial Heights and West Richmond Va in 1993. But I found an article(see below) that says the largest Arbys in the world was built in Tulsa, OK in 1995. Could someone please clarify which is the largest. Thanks, Joe

I worked as a manger and general manager in North Carolina for an Arby's franchise in the late 60s. Back then we used real inside top rounds instead of the formed beef they use. I also went to "Arby's school" in Ohio and met the Raffel Brothers. I remember when we started selling potato cakes and turnovers, that was a big deal. Before that there were only a small selection of sandwiches. We made our Jamocha syrup from scratch back then too. It sure has changed. Leeshor1 (talk) 00:35, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
- Roy Rogers Restaurants uses, or at least used to use when I ate there, real not formed beef.
"Arby's sponsored NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth for 13 races in the Nationwide Series in 2007. Kenseth won 2 races, with 15 Top 5 finishes […]" 13 races with 15 topfive finishes? 13-15 = -2 races not in top 5… Something is wrong here. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 02:06, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
- Why? It is hardly encyclopedic. In fact all the product stuff should probably be deleted as spammy/unencyclopedic/not a menu. – ukexpat (talk) 19:18, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
This reads like an ad: "In addition to its classic Roast Beef and Beef 'n Cheddar sandwiches, made in store daily, Arby's is also known for its deli-style Market Fresh line of ..." 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:32, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
Interstate Franchising date?
The article states, "Expansion to other states began in 1968, beginning in...Detroit". There was an Arby's in East Lansing Michigan in 1968. I lived a block away from it. We moved to Arizona in June 1968. I cannot be certain that the East Lansing Arby's was more than 6 months old, but I do remember eating there a lot. I find it unlikely that they could begin outstate franchising in 1968 and get the special purpose build building up and open in time for me to eat there that much and still leave town in June.
The content on this page was extensively edited by an account called "Arby's PR", and is now riddled with marketing copy.
My name is Jason Rollins and I currently work within the communications and public relations department at Arby’s. My team and I understand we should have consulted the community here before making these changes, and we’d like to clarify our reasons for making edits to the page. Arby’s has recently hired new leadership and refined the mission of the charitable arm of the company, the Arby’s Foundation. Our goal was simply to ensure that this information was correctly reflected on the Wikipedia page. Moving forward, our organization will consult this community through the talk pages prior to making any updates to the Wikipedia page.
Arby's content is not fully accurate
It says that Arby's closed in Qatar in 1990s, but it still operates, under Sterling Group of Restaurants owned by Al Muftah Group. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 11:19, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
Update to Arby's Product Info?
My name is Jason Rollins and I work within the communications and public relations department at Arby’s. I would like to update the products section of the article with the following information about the Arby’s Smokehouse Brisket sandwich. “In October 2013, Arby’s introduced its most successful limited time offer, the Smokehouse Brisket sandwich, consisting of thinly sliced, smoked beef brisket, smoked Gouda cheese, barbecue sauce and crispy onions.” I look forward to hearing your thoughts. JasonRollins10 (talk) 14:46, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
- That kind of description for what a brisket is wouldn't be necessary, but do you have a reliable source that verifies that it was the "most successful"? - Aoidh (talk) 05:05, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
- Arby's Smokehouse Brisket sandwich was first introduced and offered in restaurants during the month of October 2013. During that period, Arby's sold an average of 64 Smokehouse Brisket sandwiches, per store, per day, making it the most successful new product in the Brand's 50-year history.

There is a third-party reference to the Smokehouse Brisket sandwich launch from The National Provisioner that we can share: http://www.provisioneronline.com/articles/print/99972-bullish-on-brisket. Please let me know if you think this information suffices, otherwise I would like to just move forward with adding ‘In October 2013, Arby’s introduced the Smokehouse Brisket sandwich.'

Thank you. Here are a couple of other updates for community consideration:
Advertising: In July 2014, Arby’s launched a new branding campaign built around the tagline, “We have the meats” and the hashtag “#Meatcraft” to focus on new product offerings centered on the meats served on their menu. [SOURCE: http://nrn.com/arbys/meat-arby-s-new-marketing-campaign-lto]
Remodeled Restaurant Design: Around the brand’s 50th Anniversary, Arby’s introduced a new “Inspire” remodeled restaurant design focused on a blend of quick-service speed with fast-casual dining. Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. plans to complete 30 remodels in 2014. In 2015, Arby’s plans to remodel between 70 and 100 company-owned locations, and expects at least 100 franchised units to convert to the new design. Interior enhancements include a strong color palette that ties to brand colors, subway tiling and stainless steel in the kitchen area, multicolor wood materials, modern lighting and chalkboard graphics. Exterior enhancements of the remodels include cantilevered red awnings at the drive-thru and entranceway, new internally-illuminated signage, wood tones and white brick, enhanced lighting and upgraded landscaping.

I think this should be removed. The byline for the article states it was the most successful "new" product, but not the most successful product. I'd be hard pressed to believe it sells better than the classic roast beef, etc. Modor (talk) 08:13, 1 March 2015 (UTC)Modor

History of Arby's locations
My small town is trying to get an Arby's located here. I happened to mention that an Arby's was located here in the seventies. Nobody in my group remembered it. It closed years ago. Where can I find information on the History of Arby's locations?
