Arby’s 2Q same-store sales rise 3.7%

Company says same-store sales have risen for 23 straight quarters

Arby’s Restaurant Group Inc. said Wednesday that its same-store sales rose 3.7 percent in the second quarter — its 23rd consecutive quarter of same-store sales growth.

On a two-year basis, Arby’s said its domestic same-store sales have risen 11.3 percent.

The sandwich chain’s same-store sales have outpaced other quick-service concepts for 14 straight quarters, the company said. Transactions have grown for nine straight quarters. 

“I’m particularly pleased to see our continuous growth in guest traffic,” Arby’s CEO Paul Brown said in a statement. 

The chain added three sandwiches that had been limited-time offers to its permanent menu, he said, including the Loaded Italian and beef and turkey gyros.

“These premium sandwiches promoted alongside our affordable, high-quality sliders continues to reinforce our meat-focused approach at a range of price points that’s clearly resonating with guests,” Brown said.

Arby’s has 3,204 domestic restaurants and is working on expanding. The chain says it has the potential for as many as 6,000 locations in the U.S.
