About Us

Inspire Brands is a multi-brand restaurant company whose portfolio includes more than 8,400 Arby’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, SONIC Drive-In, and Rusty Taco locations worldwide.

We are creating a family of brands with maverick qualities, each with their own distinct positioning, guest experience, and product offering. Our brands are diverse, distinctive, and fan favorites. In a sense, you could say we seek those who provide something different than the norm.

By sharing best practices and making deep investments in areas that create advantage for our entire enterprise, Inspire will help its brands grow and succeed.

We believe that when our brands embrace a culture of innovation that complements their individuality, they are unstoppable. How do we do this? By providing the resources they need in order to innovate, grow, and reach unprecedented success. And the results speak for themselves: We’ve proven that we can make sparks fly and step-change growth happen.

We’re different from other restaurant companies, and we’re proud of that. The truth is, conformity doesn’t work for us. What does work for us – and what inspires us – are authentic restaurant brands, built by passionate team members with big dreams, who want to offer memorable experiences that keep guests coming back for more.
