These restaurants will be incremental to eight Arby’s franchise restaurants previously operated by Celebi in Turkey, which Tab Gida purchased as part of a separate agreement between the two organizations.
“Our agreement with Tab Gida is another important step in our international growth strategy,” says Wendy’s/Arby’s Group president and CEO Roland Smith. “We’re accelerating our international expansion opportunities by working with proven operators, like Tab Gida, who know how to successfully develop and operate quick-service restaurants.”
“We’re proud to add Arby’s, which is known for its quality food and service, to our brand portfolio,” says Tab Gida general manager Cancer Dikici. “With slow-roasted, freshly sliced roast beef and Beef ‘n Cheddar sandwiches, curly fries, and other signature products, we will offer our customers great-tasting alternatives to traditional quick-service food.”
Tab Gida, operating in the quick-service restaurant segment since 1995, owns or sub-franchises more than 430 restaurants in metropolitan areas throughout Turkey. With the addition of Arby’s, the company’s restaurant portfolio now includes four well-known international brands.
