Company Introduction

A&W is an iconic brand that is experiencing a major renaissance under new franchisee ownership. The A&W Brand is owned by a partnership of international and domestic franchisees, including the National A&W Franchisees Association (NAWFA). With their years of experience working on the front lines of their own franchises, NAWFA helped restructure the A&W business model in 2011, bringing the brand back in line with its 100-year-old roots.
Since our franchisees bought A&W, we have poured all our energy into re-growing the brand that started in 1919. And since no one understands franchisees better than other franchisees, A&W is fully committed to creating long-term recurring cash flow and potential multi-generational wealth for our franchisees. We do that by focusing on growing profitable sales at the store level, and not just on collecting royalty fees.
The results have soared beyond expectations. Since 2011, we’ve experienced a brand resurgence with nearly 33% increases in same-store sales on average.
It started with cold, creamy Root Beer on a hot day, and the rest, as they say, is history.
A&W has a long history in this country, beginning with the first A&W Root Beer stand in 1919. Chain founder Roy Allen handed out his first handmade soda during a parade in Lodi, CA, to welcome home returning WWI vets. A century later, we have more than 625 restaurants from coast to coast (including a couple in Alaska), we make our Root Beer fresh in stores daily, and we’re still deeply connected to the small-town communities that have supported us all these years.
