-In 2014, Arby’s became the largest restaurant chain ever to offer the hard-to-pronounce yet equally delicious Mediterranean sandwich known around the world as the gyro. The Roast Beef and Turkey Gyros were an instant hit with Arby’s guests, so much so that Arby’s now sells 27 million gyros per year, more than any restaurant in America.
What’s better than selling 27 million gyros? Selling more than 27 million gyros. To accomplish this, Arby’s now has the addition of the Traditional Greek Gyro to the menu for a limited time. Arby’s Traditional Greek Gyro features a blend of beef, lamb and Mediterranean spices sliced from a spit rotisserie and placed on a warm flatbread with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, tzatziki sauce and Greek seasoning.
“We’ve been selling amazing gyros for two years, but it turns out gyros started in Greece, not Arby’s,” said Rob Lynch, Chief Marketing Officer and Brand President of Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. “So to deliver an authentic Greek Gyro experience, we sourced gyro meat sliced from spit rotisseries like the ones found in traditional Greek restaurants. People love our gyros, and we’re excited to bring even more variety to the lineup.”
