The new owners of eight Colorado Springs Arby’s Restaurants want to refresh the chain’s image locally and is starting with a $400,000 remodel of its store at 1312 N. Academy Blvd.

United Beef Corporation, which is the largest franchisee of Arby’s restaurants in the country, bought eight Colorado Springs locations in 2009, said Kim Thompson, vice president of human resources.

“We are trying to update our image in Colorado Springs,” she wrote in an e-mail.

The company also owns two restaurants in Pueblo.

It will begin remodeling efforts at its North Academy location Nov. 15 and is expected the project to be completed by the beginning of 2012.

Local contractor TN Parker Construction will be working on the project.
