A&W franchisee opportunity

We are looking for qualified applicants who are interested in building a successful business as an A&W franchisee in Laurentian Valley. 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.

Our story – your opportunity

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-thrus and freestanding restaurants. Today, there are over 850 A&W restaurants from coast to coast – and we're still growing fast!

Our commitment to good food – farmed with care

Leadership in quality ingredients has been driving A&W's industry-leading growth. 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.


Learn everything you need to know about running a successful A&W franchise, from food service to restaurant management. Benefit from the guidance and mentorship of your Opening Team and Operations Specialist.
