Last year, the roast beef fast food chain tested the sandwich in five "hunting-centric markets", including Wisconsin. According to Arby's Chief Marketing Officer Jim Taylor, the sandwich is "a ideal example of the level of innovation coming from our teams and our commitment to creating experiences that guests can only get at Arby's".
Here's the fine print: They sold out in minutes when were available at a few places previous year - and this time they're also likely to sell out quickly.
A spokesperson for the Atlanta-based company said they are going nationwide after last year's positive response to the limited release.
When Arby's chose to take a 2016 venison sandwich promotion national for hunting season this year, the fast-food chain faced one problem: Where to find enough venison? "It's a ideal example of the level of innovation coming from our teams and our commitment to creating experiences that guests can only get at Arby's".
The venison sandwiched, tried in a limited release a year ago, will be available in all 3,300 stores across the nation, while the elk will be available in three restaurants in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana.
Building on the mainstream success of the Venison Sandwich, Arby's is launching a new limited time offering on the same day in three select locations.
The sandwich is targeting "hunters and meat enthusiasts" according to the release.
Arby's latest creation features elk steak covered in blackberry port steak sauce and crispy onions, all on a toasted roll.
