About A&W Restaurants

In 1919, A&W's founder Roy Allen set up a roadside drink stand in Lodi, California to introduce a new beverage called "root beer" at a parade honoring returning World War I veterans. With his creation an instant success, Allen took partner Frank Wright and named the beverage we know as A&W® Root Beer. Shortly after, Allen and Wright started franchising roadside stands, which makes A&W restaurants the oldest franchise restaurant chain in the country. A&W Root Beer is made today just like it was back then, fresh in the restaurants. Ingredients include real cane sugar, water; and a proprietary blend of herbs, bark, spices, and berries. It's still caffeine free and served up in a frosty mug. A&W is owned by a partnership of franchisees; the company has 1,100 franchise locations in 10 countries and territories.
