Fastest Growing National Burger Chain in Canada
This is your chance to grow your business with a top-tier restaurant brand. With over 850 restaurants across Canada, A&W is not only Canada’s second-largest quick-service burger (QSB) chain—it’s also Canada’s fastest growing QSB chain. With your help, we'd like to continue that industry-leading growth.
Canadians are Looking for Food that’s Raised More Naturally
Driving our growth has been our leadership in quality ingredients. Beginning in 2013, A&W was the first national burger restaurant in Canada to serve beef raised without the use of hormones or steroids. It’s part of a journey we’re on to source simple, great tasting ingredients, farmed with care. Our guests asked for these changes, and the response has been extremely positive. A&W followed up our beef guarantee with chicken raised without the use of antibiotics in 2014, organic Fairtrade coffee in 2015, and bacon from pork raised without the use of antibiotics in 2016.
New Urban Concept
Much of our recent growth has centered around our new urban locations, which are designed specifically to flourish in high-foot-traffic areas of Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal. They offer a modern look and feel that appeals to a new generation of guests.
Things also look a little different in-store, with the introduction of wire baskets for our famous sides and compostable paper wrappers for our burgers to accompany our famous frosted mugs. All of these items not only represent quality, they also help reduce waste.
