Arby’s Rolls Out New Design

Arby’s Restaurant Group Inc. introduced a new restaurant design and format in White House, Tenn. Known as Inspire, Arby’s new design delivers fast-casual aesthetics while employing QSR economics, according to the company. 

The restaurant features enhanced operational capabilities, a fresh color palette, communal tables, contemporized lighting and new finishes including the incorporation of wood and subway tiling. Arby’s plans to remodel and develop up to 200 units using the Inspire design in 2015.

In addition, Arby’s continues to explore new restaurant formats, which will allow it to enter new markets and geographies. Examples include end-cap drive-thru units, streamlined new stand-alone building formats that accommodate smaller footprints, as well as in-line restaurants suited to shopping center and convenience store locations — all with the same menu found at a typical stand-alone Arby’s restaurant.
