Arby's venison sandwich will be available at all MI locations this month


You won't need a 30.06 to put meat on the table starting October 21 when Arby's releases venison sandwiches nationwide and elk sandwiches in three western states.

If you remember from last year, Arby's venison sandwiches sold out in minutes, and will likely sell out again quickly this year, Arby's Chief Marketing Officer Jim Taylor says.

The sandwiches will only be available on a first come first serve basis and once they're gone, they won't be coming back anytime soon.

The nationwide rollout comes after Arby's first sold it in 17 locations - a lot of them located in popular deer-hunting hot spots like Wisconsin, Tennessee and rural Pennsylvania - last fall.

Don't expect supplies to last long when the Venison Sandwich returns on October 21, though.

"The positive response to our limited offering of venison previous year was so widespread and passionate that we knew we had to find a way to offer it nationwide", Arby's CMO Jim Taylor said in a statement. "It's a ideal example of the level of innovation coming from our teams and our commitment to creating experiences that guests can only get at Arby's". Taylor told WHAS it took a year to secure enough meat for the promotion, and he recommends customers get to Arby's early on the 21st if they want to try it.

The sandwich is targeting "hunters and meat enthusiasts" according to the release.

This hunting season, Arby's is rolling out a special limited-edition Elk Sandwich that will only be available in the three states mentioned above.

Aside from the choice of meat, it's a pretty simple sandwich, with crispy onions and a juniper berry sauce on top of a thick-cut venison steak.

Arby's latest creation features elk steak covered in blackberry port steak sauce and crispy onions, all on a toasted roll.
