Company Description


A&W is a chain of fast-food restaurants distinguished by its draft root beer and root beer floats. It has franchise locations all over the world, serving a menu of American favorites such as hamburgers, French fries and hot dogs.

Roy Allen founded A&W in 1919, and later partnered with Frank Wright. The chain is named after the first initial of each of their last names.

Previously owned by Yum Brands, A&W’s franchisee association banded together with its larger international franchisee and current CEO Kevin Bazner to purchase the brand under the name A Great American Brand.
