Arby’s has announced that it will be offering venison sandwiches this fall in six states where deer hunting is popular. The Atlanta-based chain says its sandwich will include thick-cut venison steak and crispy onions on a roll.
In a release announcing the sandwich, Arby’s chief marketing officer Rob Lynch acknowledges that the new menu item is unusual, he adds that the deer meat meal is “incredibly delicious.”
“We’re a brand that’s not afraid to take risks, and while the venison sandwich is probably the biggest stretch for us yet, it’s incredibly delicious and we can’t wait to get it in the hands of our guests,” he said in a statement. “You won’t leave a hunt empty-handed after stopping by Arby’s.”
The venison sandwich will be available for a few days at select restaurants from Oct. 31 to Nov. 28 in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Georgia.
