Arby’s confirms it will open in Fort Dodge
4 May 2018
Premium deli-inspired sandwiches from Arby’s will soon be available to hungry customers in Fort Dodge.
DRM, Inc., an Arby’s franchisee headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, is planning to open the restaurant at the corner of 29th Street and Fifth Avenue South, according to Abbey Ramsey, director of marketing for DRM, Inc.
“DRM is looking to expand in our existing territories and Fort Dodge came up as an area of opportunity for growth,” Ramsey said in a written statement. “We’ve been looking at Fort Dodge for several years and have been waiting for the right opportunity.”
That group intends to remodel the old Fazoli’s building into an Arby’s restaurant, pending approval from the city of Fort Dodge.
“In the newest Arby’s building design, “Inspire,” guests will enjoy a communal table with contemporary overhead lighting and multi-media charging outlets,” Ramsey said. “Other signature design details include white subway tile, multi-toned wood walls, chalkboard graphics and bright red chairs.”
The restaurant is anticipated to open later this year, but an exact date has not yet been revealed.
Between 40 and 50 people will be employed there, Ramsey said.
