Venison coming to Arby's ahead of Pa. hunting season



Hunters looking to get their venison fix before heading out to the woods this November are in luck.

Six Arby's locations in southwestern Pennsylvania will offer venison sandwiches for a limited time before opening day of rifle hunting season.

The sandwich includes a thick venison steak marinated in garlic, salt and pepper. The meat is topped with crispy onions and a juniper berry sauce and served on a toasted roll.

"Hunters hunt the meats, and we have the meats, so it makes sense for us to connect with them and offer a sandwich that they can't get at any other restaurant chain," Rob Lynch, chief marketing officer and brand president of Arby's Restaurant Group Inc., said in a press release "We're a brand that's not afraid to take risks and while the Venison sandwich is probably the biggest stretch for us yet, it's incredibly delicious and we can't wait to get it in the hands of our guests. You won't leave a hunt empty-handed after stopping by Arby's."

The sandwiches will be available Nov. 25-27 at these Pennsylvania locations:

5205 Library Road, Bethel Park
4260 Ohio River Blvd., Bellevue
16 Towne Center Drive, Leechburg
2539 W State St., New Castle
2648 Ellwood Road, New Castle
3224 Wilmington Road, New Castle
Select locations in Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Tennessee and Wisconsin are also participating in the promotion.

Last year's deer hunting season had the biggest buck kill Pennsylvania has seen in 13 years. Archery season for deer opened across Pennsylvania on Oct. 1.

My question is - how much does it cost?

If it takes 2 to 3 years to raise a cow to maturity and a full grown cow probably makes 700 lbs of meat, and it takes almost 2 years to raise a deer to maturity and it produces about 70 lbs of meat, how much would it cost to cut the steaks off and make sandwiches out of it.

My guess is that it would cost about $15 a lbs to sell venison - hence twice as much as a good steak in a grocery store. You would have to be nuts to believe that the meat is going to be more than a 1/16th of an inch thick!

I had one when they were in New Castle. The picture is pretty accurate of the sandwich I got.
Price was $7.99 for the meal and was good tasting and more tender than I expected.


Our restaurants had a limit because they said the first few restaurants sold out so fast.

seeing how fast they sold out, they should bring them back in vast quantities and in more locations.

A while back my local Giant supermarket had venison tenderloin steaks, about $25 a pound, if I recall. Is the deer meat market regulated and inspected by the FDA? I'm thinking of these deer farms and CW.
