Arby's Business Overview

Testimonials »

"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."

"Product development is huge. We have the best pipeline of products this Brand has ever had. I am on the Arby's Franchise Advisory Board, and we ask for proven, tested products and to be told the honest truth about how things test. They shoot straight, and that has helped us put promotional products in that deliver on expectations based upon what happened in the test markets. ... We see great growth areas around us, and we have some plans to really try to grow this Brand. Personally, I count my blessings every morning. I have good people who are working for me who are working their butts off everyday. I want continued growth for them. I could be happy where I am now for the rest of my life and would never have another worry, but what I want is continued growth for our folks and for the team that works for this franchise organization."

head of Brumit Restaurant Group, which owns 44 Arby's restaurants in NC and SC
