Get into business with a successful
Fast Food Brand
Chain in Canada
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-thru’s and
freestanding restaurants. Today, there are over 850 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.

Farmed with Care
Leadership in quality ingredients has been driving A&W's
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.

“I’d never cooked a french fry or flipped a burger! The amount of support that A&W showed
us, to teach us all that we needed to know to be successful was tremendous.”
