"My brother and I, we live and breathe the business, and we love the responsibility of being the caretakers of the legacy that my parents started. We got to work alongside my dad. I have other brothers and sisters and brothers-in-law that have all been a part of the business over the last 45 years. What's really neat about a family business that we have is that we have the third generation coming up. I've got three nephews that are involved in leadership in the company. They all started working in the restaurants. It's a great legacy we have. We're very proud of it."
"The Fast Crafted® products appeal to two different groups (QSR guests and fast casual guests who appreciate being able to get a quality sandwich on the go), and the innovation that is taking place is quite a nice thing to be involved in. The ARG leadership team really is here to improve the Brand, listen to the franchisees and accept their input, and get their buy-in. They respect the knowledge on other side of table, and that is great. ... I think through the creativity of the ad agency, Fallon, and the creativity of our marketing team, they have accomplished great positioning -- letting guests know we deliver quality proteins. And I like the way (CMO) Rob Lynch has engaged the social media aspects to drive young people to Arby's. All brands age, and you always want to stay in front of young guests."
