    A Brief History

    Arby’s was originally founded in Boardman, OH by the Raffel brothers who thought that a fast food alternative to hamburgers was needed. Thus, the idea to open a chain that offered roast beef and deli sandwiches was born. Originally when toying with names they settled on “Big Tex” which is why the sign and logo for the company resembles a cowboy hat. Sadly, after they had invested resources into the logo they realized their chosen name had been taken by a local company in nearby Akron.  The brother’s hunch about serving alternatives to hamburgers was a smashing success as the company quickly grew at a pace of 50 new stores a year and outpaced every other chain during the 1970’s.
