Arby’s was founded in Boardman, Ohio, on July 23, 1964, by Forest and Leroy Raffel, owners of a restaurant equipment business. They initially served only roast meat beef sandwiches, potato chips, and soft drinks. Roast beef, like traditional fast food, is an excellent draw for customers. Unfortunately, there are not as many people who look for roast beef as fast food. The fast-food chain fought back the rumours (completely demystified) of what goes into their roast beef. One of the customers had an incident stating a bug in their sandwich and red peelings, and the food is nasty.
