A&W Restaurants: The Iconic American Brand - Now Franchising in Your Area!
America’s first and oldest restaurant chain founded in 1919, A&W still makes Root Beer fresh in each restaurant and served in a frosty mug alongside 100% U.S. Beef burgers, Hand-Breaded chicken tenders, Wisconsin White Cheddar Cheese Curds and other All American Food® favorites.

A&W Restaurants, Inc. is seeking Franchise Partners to join our 100-year old A&W family.  Since being purchased by a partnership of domestic and international franchisees in 2011, we have set our sights on being a world class franchise organization.


Average comp sales are up 33% since 2011 and our number one goal is to continue to grow profitable same-store sales.  We utilize a strategic brand partnership with Restaurant Supply Chain Solutions, one of the largest supplier and distributors in the world, providing the lowest food, paper and equipment costs possible to our franchisees.  We are actively seeking to grow throughout the U.S. capitalizing on our “hip nostalgia” brand heritage. 

We’re more than just a place for a frosty mug of Root Beer and a great meal.  We’re A&W Restaurants and we’re inviting you to be part of something bigger than just owning a business.  We’re inviting you to be part of the A&W family.  Create your own A&W memories for yourself and your community.
