About A&W

OUR STORY

Your Opportunity

The first A&W drive-in restaurant opened in Winnipeg in 1956. An instant hit, A&W expanded to build restaurants across Canada. We’ve proudly served great-tasting burgers, hand-crafted onion rings and frosted mugs of famous A&W Root Beer to millions of happy customers.

A&W changed with the times, as our innovative franchisees pioneered locations in food court malls, drive-thrus and freestanding restaurants. Today, there are over 1000 A&W restaurants from coast to coast – and we’re still growing fast!

We are looking for qualified applicants who are interested in building a successful business as an A&W franchisee. Maybe you’re an energetic young entrepreneur, an experienced and upstanding member of your community? We give you the support you need to take on a big opportunity.

 

Our Commitment to Good Food

Farmed with Care

Leadership in quality ingredients has been driving A&W’s industry-leading growth.

In 2013, we embarked on a journey to source simple, great-tasting ingredients, farmed with care. We’re proud to have high standards when it comes to our food and you can taste it in everything we serve. We are the first national burger chain to serve beef raised without the use of hormones or steroids and chicken and pork raised without the use of antibiotics. These positive changes are part of the reason we’re increasing our market share every single month. You’re joining a family that cares about the people and the places we live and work.
