This 43-year established A&W restaurant boasts the iconic brand emblematic of American values and simpler times. Their menu is filled with the classics including hot dogs, burgers, shakes, and of course, A&W Root Beer.

The owner desires to relocate to be closer to her grandchildren and would like to sell the franchise to someone seeking a well-established business, an excellent facility, and growth potential. The owner hopes to find a buyer who will love the business and community as much as they and their family have, and who will further the outstanding reputation the restaurant has within the community.

The Business has been in operation since 1976. Situated along a major US Highway and a well-known pit stop for families traveling to the Dunes and Pacific beaches, the Restaurant is in a prime location and receives plenty of traffic from tourists and local customers.

Iconic American Brand

A&W fast food franchise is experiencing a comeback in popularity with average sales increases of almost 33%

A&W is an iconic brand that is experiencing a major renaissance under new franchisee ownership. The A&W Brand is owned by a partnership of international and domestic franchisees, including the National A&W Franchisees Association (NAWFA). With their years of experience working on the front lines of their own franchises, NAWFA helped restructure the A&W business model in 2011, bringing the brand back in line with its 100-year-old roots.

Since our franchisees bought A&W, we have poured all our energy into re-growing the brand that started in 1919. And since no one understands franchisees better than other franchisees, A&W is fully committed to creating long-term recurring cash flow and potential multi-generational wealth for our franchisees. We do that by focusing on growing profitable sales at the store level, and not just on collecting royalty fees.

The results have soared beyond expectations. Since 2011, we’ve experienced a brand resurgence with nearly 33% increases in same-store sales on average.

Our leadership team has decades of experience and a strong background in operations. Combined with our franchisee input, we bring together frontline experience and institutional knowledge. That has enabled A&W to make changes to the brand based on long-term growth objectives, rather than a short-term rewards-based decision typical of Wall Street or private equity investors. Our franchisee-owned brand is here for the long haul, and our strategies have already paid off with strong results and lots of room to grow.

What our iconic restaurant brand stands for

Have you been to an A&W lately? What may surprise you if you haven’t been in a while, or if you’ve never been to one at all, is the quality of the food. Yes, a restaurant is expected to serve quality food. But in some segments, particularly fast food, there’s a broad definition of what’s considered “quality.” There’s a big difference between a Five Guys burger and a McDonald’s burger. And A&W is much, much closer to the former when it comes to food quality.

Part of that dedication stems from our long history. Our brand was born in rural Lodi, CA, in 1919, when we served our first homemade Root Beer during a homecoming parade for WWI veterans.

We hold fast today to those values that have kept us in business for a century, and we’re excited to be in the midst of a renewed interest in the A&W franchise. We’re growing nationwide and looking for single- and multi-unit investors to join us. To learn more, please fill out the form below and continue to explore our research pages.
