On July 23, 1964, entrepreneurs Leroy and Forrest Raffel of Boardman, Ohio, turned their idea into a reality. That's when the first Arby's restaurant opened, following their concept of offering an alternative to the national fast-food burger restaurants popping up across the country. Their sandwich shops would serve "hot, freshly sliced roast beef sandwiches as fast as anyone could flip a burger."
That's how the Arby's national chain began. In celebration of its 49th anniversary, Arby's will sell its signature roast beef sandwich for the 1964 price of 64 cents, today only, while supplies last. Get the coupon at www.arbys.com.
