    The phrase “get ’em while they’re hot” certainly applied when it came to Arby’s new seasonal offering. Last week, Arby’s announced they would be unveiling a venison sandwich, made from 100 percent deer meat. In addition to the venison steak, the sandwich also came with onions and a berry sauce on a toasted roll. The sandwich was to be available from Friday through Sunday, but as of about noon Friday, a spokesperson reported that all five Minnesota locations carrying the sandwich had sold out. In some case, it sold out in less than a half-hour. The sandwiches were briefly available...

    Arby's offered free meals for police officers in South Florida on Friday, following a controversial incident involving an Pembroke Pines officer. In addition, Arby's CEO Paul Brown traveled to the area to speak with law enforcement personnel.

However, they gave their meal to a homeless man instead of having it for themselves. The free meals and CEO visit follow an incident earlier this week involving Arby's manager Angel Mirabel, clerk Kenneth Davenport and Pembroke Pines Sgt. Jennifer Martin. Davenport...

    A Florida police department is outraged after an Arby’s employee refused to serve one of their officers simply because the officer was a cop. A Pembroke Pines police officer went through the drive-through of a local Arby’s around 7 p.m. Tuesday evening, but when the officer pulled up, one employee refused service. “I don’t have the exact quote, but something was said to the effect of ‘We don’t want to serve you because you’re a police officer'” Pembroke Pines Major and Public Information Officer Carlos Bermudez told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    The head of Arby's restaurant chain has apologized to the Pembroke Pines Police Department after an employee at a local restaurant reportedly refused to serve a uniformed officer. Arby's Chief Executive Officer, Paul Brown, and Senior Vice President of Operations, Scott Boatwright, contacted PPPD Chief Dan Giustino to apologize on behalf of the organization, according to a police report. Both men assured Giustino that the employee's behavior was "unacceptable" and did not represent the company's values. Giustino accepted the apology, and the department considers the matter closed. In a Facebook post Tuesday, another officer alleged that on Monday, a fellow...

    After realizing that people thought Arby’s mainly served roast beef, the company made a poster showcasing a large stack of all the meats on the menu, which includes bacon and brisket, according to The Washington Post. It worked. “People started coming in and asking, ‘Can I have that?’” Arby’s vice president of brand and corporate communications Christopher Fuller said. Arby’s decided to go with it, and the “Meat Mountain” was born. It will not be listed on the menu, but store associates will make it for the customers who request it. At $10, the sandwich includes (from the bottom up)...

    If your idea of a perfect weekend is staring at your TV and salivating while watching a beef brisket being smoked, you should be in Duluth, Minn., Saturday. Starting at 2 p.m. ET and wrapping up at 3 a.m. ET on Sunday, local TV station My9 will be airing a non-stop commercial for Arby's smokehouse brisket sandwich. “As you’d expect, the idea around airing a commercial for 13 hours required that we cast a pretty wide net,” Arby’s spokesman Jeff Baker told the Duluth News Tribune. “There were very few folks who could do this the right way, and we...
  • Don’t do business with progressive appeasers (heads up - take action!!)

    Let’s stipulate: Activists on the left are free to exercise their rights of speech and assembly to boycott businesses whose politics they oppose. Conversely, activists on the right are free to exercise the power of their pocketbooks and refrain from supporting businesses that shun their values. So, what are you waiting for, conservatives? There are coordinated shakedowns taking place right now that involve some of America’s most prominent companies who’ve chosen to surrender to progressive bullying and race-card opportunism. Silence is complicity. On Tuesday, McDonald’s told liberal magazine Mother Jones that the company had “decided to cut ties with ALEC,...

    On Wednesday, Arby's inflamed the conservative blogosphere with the announcement on Twitter that it will no longer advertise on Rush Limbaugh's show. Big mistake. The statement probably would've blown over, like all the rest of them, but Arby's moves following the announcement have awakened a sleeping giant. Shortly after its statement, the Arby's Twitter account went on a rampage blocking users who disagreed with the franchise, as Twitchy reported:

    Remember all the self-righteous chest thumping that went on after conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh made fun of the 30-year old Georgetown activist Sandra Fluke? I’m sure you do. Politicians, celebrities, and major companies all got in on the “Censure Limbaugh” action. And why not? It was all the rage. Everyone was doing it. And just like any good fad, somebody’s always late to the party. In this particular story, that “somebody” is Arby’s. Yep: the third-tier fast food chain announced yesterday (again, about a month late) that it would be removing advertisements from Limbaugh’s program. Odd: “Limbaugh notes...

    Last night, I linked to the story about Arby’s blocking conservatives on Twitter for protesting the company’s protest of conservative talk show giant Rush Limbaugh. Today, the Right Sphere notes that Arby’s president is a big Democrat donor.Here’s the bottom line on this latest manufactured attempt by the Hush Rush mob to make it appear that he and the radio stations that carry his show are suffering economic harm because of Soros monkey-directed pressure.It’s complete bull. Total Kabuki theater. Arby’s is not and has not ever been a national sponsor of Rush’s program. In the radio industry, advertisers can buy...

    A fast food restaurant in Killeen was robbed Sunday night, but what made this hold-up unique was the weapon the assailant used. Police say the robber came into the Arby's Restaurant on W. Rancier Drive just after 9:00p.m. holding a samurai sword. He demanded cash, and at some point he poked someone with the sword. That person was not seriously injured. The man was described as a black male, about 5'7' tall. He was said to be wearing a long sleeved button down shirt with tan pants. There was no immediate word on how much money he took.

    Roast Beef Sandwich Chain Buys Square Burger Biz For $2 Billion (AP) After two past rejections, the owner of Arby's shaved roast beef sandwich restaurants is buying Wendy's, the fast-food chain famous for its made-to-order square hamburgers and chocolate Frosty dessert, for around $2 billion. Triarc Companies Inc., which is owned by billionaire investor Nelson Peltz, said Thursday it will pay about $2.34 billion in an all-stock deal for the nation's third-largest hamburger chain started in 1969 by Dave Thomas. Wendy's had rejected at least two buyout offers from Triarc. Thomas' daughter Pam Thomas Farber said the family was devastated...
