ATLANTA - Arby's Restaurant Group, Inc. is opening its second Army and Air Force Exchange Service operated Arby's(r) restaurant in the Exchange at Fort Stewart, Georgia, April 15.

Military personnel and their Families stationed or visiting Fort Stewart will be able to enjoy Arby's full menu, including its classic Roast Beef sandwiches, Curly Fries, Jamocha Shakes and Market Fresh(r) deli-style sandwiches and salads, as well as new found favorites, including the new premium Angus Three Cheese and 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 Fort Bliss, Texas in Freedom Crossing. A third Exchange-operated Arby's will open at Fort Carson in Colorado later this year, with additional opportunities at other U.S. military installations being explored.

"Arby's offers a unique 'taste of home' and menu variety that our Soldiers and their Families are looking for," said Tom Branning, VP Food and Theater, the Exchange. "People at Fort Stewart are very excited about Arby's opening here."

"We are honored to work with the Exchange to bring some of the comforts of home to military personnel and their families," said John Todd, Chief Development Officer, Arby's Restaurant Group, Inc. "We look forward to opening more Exchange-operated Arby's in the future."

Known in the fast food industry for creating unique, premium sandwiches, Arby's has been in the roast beef business since 1964 when the Raffel Brothers first opened an Arby's(r) restaurant under a glowing neon cowboy hat in Boardman, Ohio. Today, headquartered in Atlanta, Arby's Restaurant Group is the second largest quick-service sandwich chain in the U.S. with more than 3,600 restaurants system wide. In addition to its classic, slow-roasted, freshly sliced roast beef and Beef 'n Cheddar sandwiches, Arby's one-of-a-kind menu also includes a deli-style Market Fresh(r) line of sandwiches, toasted subs and salads, Curly Fries, Jamocha shakes and the 2010 introduction of a national Value Menu, starting at $1.
