Flynn Restaurant Group LLC (FRG), Arby’s largest franchisee, is currently undergoing an $11.5 million dollar brand revitalization of 32 Arby’s locations across the St. Louis area, including Jerseyville’s restaurant.
Renovations will continue to be completed throughout the remainder of 2022, leaving each restaurant with a fresh, new and improved look and feel. The $11.5 million dollar brand revitalization will reinforce Flynn Restaurant Group’s commitment to the western Illinois and eastern Missouri areas – injecting over 500 jobs to these respective local economies.
The Arby’s locations in Illinois, Jerseyville, Shiloh, and Fairview Heights; and Missouri, St. Louis, Dellwood, Union, St. Peters and O’Fallon will undergo enhancements without disrupting services. Construction of each remodel is expected to be completed in just a few weeks, with each drive-thru remaining open to guests and offering construction deals.
Each newly remodeled Arby’s location will include the brand’s upgraded “Inspired” aesthetics, featuring transformative exteriors, new authentic textures, multi-colored wood materials, modern lighting and chalkboard graphics.

“Flynn Restaurant Group is constantly looking for ways to reinforce our commitment to the communities we serve, and we hope these remodels will be warmly received by our valued customers and employees in the western Illinois and eastern Missouri areas,” said Jerrod Mitchell, Vice President of Marketing, Flynn Restaurant Group. “As a local partner, we aim every day to provide our guests with the quality food and service they deserve while also investing in these communities through maintaining and creating jobs.”
