Arby’s chief Tom Garrett resigns

Nation’s Restaurant News reports that Tom Garrett has resigned as president and chief executive of Arby’s after 29 years with the brand. Garrett leaves as Arby’s continues to struggle with lackluster sales. In the company’s latest quarter, ended Sept. 27, Arby’s reported a 9-percent drop in North American same-store sales. Roland Smith, president and chief executive of Atlanta-based Wendy’s/Arby’s Group, has assumed the role of interim president for the brand while the chain searches for a permanent replacement.
