United States Beef Corporation (US Beef), Arby’s largest franchisee, headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of its newest Arby’s restaurant in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on Tuesday, November 15, at 10:00am, on the Southeast corner of 104th and May Avenue in Oklahoma City. This new Arby’s restaurant will be the 42nd Arby’s in the Oklahoma City DMA and its 96th in the state of Oklahoma.

Arby’s newly constructed restaurant will occupy  2,830 square feet, with comfortable, full service seating for 56 guests, and a convenient drive thru for guests on the go, employing approximately 40 full and part-time workers.

From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., guests will be able to spin the Arby’s prize wheel to win free food and other Arby’s branded prizes. KJ103 FM will be broadcasting live from 11:00 to 1:00pm, giving away free concert tickets, movies passes, CD’s and DVD’s. And, between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm, Rumble, the Oklahoma City Thunder’s favorite mascot, will be on site to greet guests and create a magical photo opportunity for you and your children.

US Beef Chief Executive Officer, John Davis, is elated to make Arby’s convenient for everyone in the Oklahoma City area, saying, “Oklahoma City has always been one of our empire markets. We were the first to bring Arby’s to Oklahoma City, and grew with it over the decades. We’ll be expanding even further in 2017-18 with new restaurants in Choctaw and Yukon. And we’ll be remodeling two restaurants in the metro area here every year in the next three years. Arby’s is having such a resurgence right now, and its new “Inspire” design exterior and interior reflects the new image of Arby’s. When our guests in Oklahoma City have a craving for the deli-style sandwiches only Arby’s can bring to the table, we’re happy we can be there for them.”

On that new Arby’s “Inspire” architectural design, Davis was equally exuberant, saying “Every Arby’s restaurant we’re building now will showcase our modern “Inspire” design. 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 Oklahoma City’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, multi-color 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 Smokehouse Brisket and our new menu of Buttermilk Chicken Sandwiches and steak and chicken fajitas. Naturally, don’t forget the Arby’s 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.
