Arby’s Venison Sandwiches Coming to 6 States

17 stores will carry the new product

Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. (NYSE:WEN) has been pushing the slogan “We have the meats!” for a while now.

Arby'sThe fast-food chain is ramping up efforts to have more meat products with new venison sandwiches, that are slated to come to six states. The product is 100% deer meat that comes from free-range, grass-fed dear.

The Arby’s venison sandwich consists pf premium thick-cup top and bottom round venison steaks, along with crispy onions and berry sauce. The item is then served on a toasted roll.

The move is part of the restaurant’s “It’s Meat Season” campaign, honoring the beginning of hunting season. The move allows Arby’s “to continue to set ourselves apart from the competition when it comes to protein,” according to brand president and chief marketing officer Rob Lynch.

He added that other fast-food restaurants do not offer venison products, and deer hunters will be especially fond of this sandwich. 17 restaurants will carry venison sandwiches, including locations in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Tennessee and Georgia.

In other fast food news, Taco Bell (NYSE:YUM) recently announced that it will build a restaurant that will be made entirely from shipping containers.

Burger King (NYSE:QSR) has also been trying out new products, including the Cheetos Chicken Fries, which combines Chicken Fries with Cheetos.

Pizza Hut, Inc. is looking to boost sales with a temporary tattoo that allows you to order from your phone.

WEN shares dipped 1% Wednesday afternoon.
