Arby’s Releases First Hamburger in Company History

The innovation is 50 percent larger than McDonald’s Quarter Pounder, Arby’s says.

ARBY’S

The burger is 6.4 ounces, or 40 percent of a pound.

Arby’s coined catch phrase “We have the Meats” is taking on a new meaning.

On Monday, the country’s second-largest sandwich chain (in terms of footprint) released the premium Wagyu Steakhouse Burger, its first hamburger.

Roughly 52 percent of the meat is American Wagyu, which is a blend of Japanese Wagyu and high-quality continental breeds of cattle, the company said. The remaining 48 percent is ground beef. It’s is topped with American cheese, shredded lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onion, and a special burger sauce on a toasted buttery brioche bun. Customers are able to add bacon and ranch to add even more flavor. The menu innovation is cooked using sous vide style, which “locks in juices and rich flavor, producing a juicy, tender burger with a slightly pink center.”

“Premium Wagyu is normally reserved for the finest steakhouses, but the meat experts at Arby’s are now bringing it to the masses,” the company said in a statement.

The burger is 6.4 ounces, or 40 percent of a pound, making it more than 50 percent larger than McDonald’s Quarter Pounder. Starting at $5.99, it will be available from May 23 to July 31.

“Boring Burgers are a fast-food staple, so Arby’s felt compelled to raise the bar with a Wagyu Steakhouse Burger. “Instead of focusing on making billions of mediocre burgers, we’re taking a stance on high-quality meat that deserves to be cooked properly,” CMO Patrick Schwing said in a statement. “As the meat experts, we’ve spent over two years of dedicated research and development to deliver a premium burger that redefines what’s possible from a drive thru. Overdone burgers are over and done.”

The Wagyu Steakhouse Burger is the latest example of Arby’s innovating outside the sandwich space. In March 2021, the chain added crinkle fries as a permanent menu item to go alongside its classic curly fries. Later in the year, the fast-food chain launched six-piece boneless wings available in a Classic Buffalo Sauce and Hot Honey Sauce.

Arby’s is coming off a successful 2021 in which U.S. same-store sales rose 5.2 percent year-over-year and 11.7 percent on a two-year stack. Parent company Inspire Brands, which also owns, Dunkin’, Baskin-Robbins, Sonic Drive-In, Jimmy John’s, Rusty Taco, and Buffalo Wild Wings, grew domestic digital sales more than 35 percent to $6 billion-plus and increased its loyalty user base to almost 50 million members. The company opened more than 1,400 restaurants in 2021, including more than 500 franchise-led stores in the U.S.

Humor!

Walter took his wife Ethel to the state fair every year, and every time he would say to her, “Ethel, you know that I’d love to go for a ride in that helicopter.”

But Ethel would always reply, “I know that Walter, but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars.”

Finally, they went to the fair, and Walter said to Ethel, “Ethel, you know I’m 87 years old now. If I don’t ride that helicopter this year, I may never get another chance.” Once again Ethel replied, “Walter, you know that helicopter is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars.”

This time the helicopter pilot overheard the couple’s conversation and said, “Listen folks, I’ll make a deal with you. I’ll take both of you for a ride; if you can both stay quiet for the entire ride and not say a word I won’t charge you! But if you say just one word, it’s 50 dollars.”

Walter and Ethel agreed and up they went in the helicopter. The pilot performed all kinds of fancy moves and tricks, but not a word was said by either Walter or Ethel.

The pilot did his death-defying tricks over and over again, but still there wasn’t so much as one word said.

When they finally landed, the pilot turned to Walter and said, “Wow! I’ve got to hand it to you. I did everything I could to get you to scream or shout out, but you didn’t. I’m really impressed!”

Walter replied, “Well to be honest I almost said something when Ethel fell out but, you know, 50 dollars is 50 dollars.
