Arbys is about to have even more meats.

The fast-food chain announced last week that itll test elk sandwiches after releasing venison sandwiches to its stores nationwide, according to USA Today.

The venison sandwiches, which come with a berry sauce, will be available Saturday, Oct. 21, in 3,300 different locations.

Arbys Chief Marketing Officer Jim Taylor told USA Today that the stores venison sandwiches, which were released last year in six states and sold out quickly, will likely sell very fast.

"If people are interested in trying the sandwich, the only way to guarantee they can get one is to get there when we open or a little before and make sure they are in line, just like the folks last year," he said.

Arbys receives its venison meat, which isnt popular in the United States, from New Zealand, where it is grass-fed and free-range, according to

Taylor told WHAS-11 that it took nearly a year to secure enough meat for this promotion.

Meanwhile, Arbys will also release an elk sandwich that will only be available in three locations Colorado, Wyoming and Montana.

Those locations are:

200 East 144th Ave., Thornton, Colorado, 80023

2607 CY Ave., Casper, Wyoming, 82604

2834 King Ave. W, Billings, Montana, 59102

"We took a look at what hunters and wild-game enthusiasts love to talk about eating, and elk was something that kept popping up, and we said, 'This is another great tasting game meat we think our guests would enjoy,'" Taylor said.
