DRM is a family business which was established by Dean Johnson in the year 1977. He has two some named Matt Johnson and Marc Johnson who joined the business in the year 1984. Both, Marc and Matt, are President and they play CEO and COO respectively. Both of them are 100% owner of DRM. Johnson brothers grew in fast food environment and introduced the experience and vision to make DRM amongst the flexible and interesting place to work. They are said to be the employer of choice because with flexibility and comfort they provide opportunity to learn and grow. Well what we are concerned about is the merger between DRM and Arby’s Restaurant.
DRM currently owns approx 68 Arby’s restaurant in 4 states. They have their corporate office in the city of Omaha, Nebraska. DRM is segregated 4 primary market zones. Nebraska has around ten restaurants of Arbys out of which 7 outlets are in Lincoln, Beatrice has one and Omaha has two. There are 22 DRM Arbys restaurant in Iowa state with 9 outlets in Des Moines region and 2 in Ames while Altoona, Mason, Newton, Ankeny city, Ottumwa city, Newton, Pella city, Indianola city, Clive, Osceola as well as Carroll each has one Arbys outlet. Illinois and Southern Wisconsin contains altogether 12 Arbys restaurant. Twenty-four DRM Arby’s restaurants in Central Wisconsin.
DRM copes well with the advancing technology. They have their presence online, well linked intranet, POS system and back office system which enables them to be updated. There is another agreement signed between DRM and Arbys to launch 19 more stores and have exclusive rights of the territories. However, what Arby’s aficionados will be interested in is the same taste that they obtain through Arby’s menu. Though the merger has bought some extreme management level changes there will be no alterations in the taste and services offered as Arby’s.
