Arby’s Is Coming In September

A new Arby’s Restaurant will be located at 2101 S. Main Street, the site of the former Kentucky Fried Chicken Restaurant.

“I’m told by our construction and development team that we are on track to open our new restaurant there in September of this year,” said Fred Fleischner, Corporate Communications Vice President for United States Beef Corporation, doing business as Arby’s, Tulsa, Oklahoma. ” And we can’t wait.”

‘This restaurant will feature Arby’s Inspire design,” Fleischner said.  “The Inspire design increases energy efficiency and delivers an upgraded guest experience. The design also includes authentic features such as wood tones, white brick, subway tiles,  stainless steel finishes, and upgraded lighting and landscaping. We are converting our new restaurant from what was a former KFC/A&W combo restaurant.”

Fleischner said Arby’s can’t share the exact rendering of what the restaurant will look like but the Fort Scott site will be very similar to the Monett, Missouri site, which is featured at the top of the story.

  1. I can’t wait for Arby’s to open up. As long as they aren’t using the same contractor as the one that built the new jail, it might even open on time:-)

    1. That was my comment but I don’t see it. Looks like I am not the only one to be to be dumb enough to have facts.
