Arby's Tests Selling Meat-to-Go But Not Roast Beef

Arby's is testing the sale of three of their sliced meats in half-pound and one-pound increments to take home in several locations in the Atlanta area.

According to CNN, the test has been ongoing since mid-July and is slated to end sometime this month.

The meats in question for sale include roast turkey, ham, and corned beef but not the chain's signature roast beef. Apparently, a survey showed the company that customers wanted cold cuts rather than meats that needs to be reheated to take home.

Prices are in the ballpark of your supermarket deli at $4.99 for a half-pound and $8.99 for a pound.

The concept is similar to how other chains, like Panera and Denny's, have opted to offer the convenience of being able to purchase some groceries and staples while picking up a meal.

For those of you wish to purchase some Arby's roast beef to take home, at least one franchisee group regularly sells it by the pound (at $9.99) as part of their catering services but they require a 5-pound minimum purchase. They operate locations in Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Missouri.
