Tulsa, OK (RestaurantNews.com) United States Beef Corporation (US Beef), Arby’s largest franchisee, headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, announced fundraising efforts today to assist with disaster relief for those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Starting Monday, September 4, through Sunday, September 10, all US Beef owned Arby’s restaurants in nine states across the Midwest and western states, will be donating 10% of all brisket sandwich sales to the American Red Cross relief efforts emerging from Hurricane Harvey. The proceeds donated from these sales should generate approximately $50,000 in donations to the relief effort.
“This hurricane has been historic in the damage and devastation it has unleashed on our neighbors to the south, and we are eager to support the relief efforts and do our part in assisting the American Red Cross in rebuilding and aiding so many communities impacted by this deluge. Arby’s smoked briskets come from a smokehouse in Texas, and that’s why we selected those sandwiches for this fundraiser,” says John Davis, Chief Executive Officer of Tulsa-based US Beef.
This fundraising effort is only in all 356 US Beef owned Arby’s restaurants, and includes Arby’s restaurants in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and Washington.
