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 the sandwich is thick-cut venison steak, crispy onions and juniper-infused Cabernet sauce on a roll.
In a release announcing the sandwich, Arby’s chief marketing officer Rob Lynch acknowledges that the idea “is probably the biggest stretch for us yet” but adds that the deer meat meal is “incredibly delicious.”
“Bringing venison to our menu also allows us to continue to set ourselves apart from the competition when it comes to proteins,” he said. “You simply can’t find this at other restaurant chains.”
