<h2>About A&W Restaurants:</h2>
A&W was founded as a Root Beer stand by Roy Allen who used a formula purchased from an Arizona pharmacist, which consisted of a unique blend of juices from 16 herbs, spices, barks and berries. Allen sold the cold, creamy root beer for a nickel a mug on a downtown corner. The venue proved so popular that the company expanded to four sites and the concession evolved into a "drive-in." Allen approached employee Frank Wright and the two formed a partnership which became A&W.

A&W® All-American Food®, based in Louisville, Kentucky, is the longest-running QSR franchise chain in America, serving hometown favorites to friends and families for over 90 years. Since 1919, A&W All-American Food has offered its iconic, frosty mug root beer float with All-American pure-beef hamburgers and hot dogs. There are approximately 360 A&W All-American Food outlets in the U.S., more than 260 in nine other countries, and more than 620 additional points of distribution in multibrand restaurants.
