The Last Arby’s in MoCo Has Closed
Arby’s, located at 11710 Rockville Pike in North Bethesda, has closed.
An employee of the location sent us a message yesterday letting us know that the location had closed and a visit to the restaurant revealed that the menu boards both inside and outside the location had been removed.
Though the location is listed as open on the Arby’s website, the phone number is now disconnected: we have reached out to Arby’s corporate for final confirmation.
We know Arby’s has had at least two other MoCo locations in the past– in Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg and in Wheaton.
Arby’s was founded in Boardman, Ohio, on July 23, 1964 by Forrest and Leroy Raffel. The restaurant was named for the Raffel Brothers (RB) rather than “roast beef, which many think it was named for. The chain has over 3,000 restaurants worldwide.
