Arby's Marches Into Ft. Stewart
Arby’s Restaurant Group is opening its second Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES or the Exchange)-operated Arby’s restaurant in the Exchange at Ft. Stewart, Georgia, on April 15.
Military personnel and their families stationed at or visiting Ft.Stewart will be able to enjoy Arby’s full menu including its classic Roast Beef sandwiches, Curly Fries, Jamocha Shakes,and Market Fresh deli-style sandwiches and salads, as well as new-found favorites, including the premium Angus Three Cheese & Bacon Sandwich, Value Menu starting at $1, and more.
After an extensive search to add another restaurant brand to its portfolio last year, the Exchange signed a development agreement with Arby’s to open restaurants on U.S.military installations.
In November 2010, the first Exchange-operated Arby’s opened at Ft. Bliss, Texas, in Freedom Crossing. A third Exchange-operated Arby’s will open at Ft.Carsonin Coloradolater this year, with additional opportunities at other U.S.military installations being explored.
“We are honored to work with the Exchange to bring some of the comforts of home to military personnel and their families,” says John Todd, chief development officer, Arby’s Restaurant Group. “We look forward to opening more Exchange-operated Arby’s in the future.”
