So far this year, the iconic root beer and burger chain has signed agreements for nine new U.S. franchise restaurants. There are currently more than 900 A&Ws in the U.S. and Asia.

Same-store sales for the first half of the year in the U.S. are up 19.6% over 2020, which was the brand’s ninth straight year of comp-sales growth. Since being acquired by franchisees nearly 10 years ago, comp-sales are up more than 50%.

Las Vegas real estate developers Mike Swecker and Alan Perlmutter signed an agreement to open five restaurants in Clark County, Nevada, which includes Las Vegas, Henderson, and other rapidly growing cities.

“Both new and current franchisees recognize A&W offers a unique opportunity,” said CEO Kevin Bazner. “A&W is amazingly popular with consumers, and the concept is extremely well suited to conversions and c-stores, which make getting a location up and running faster and more cost-effective,” he added.

The search for sites is underway, with the restaurants expected to include a mix of conversions, c-stores, and new construction. All new A&Ws are single-brand locations that feature drive-thrus.

“Unlike many other QSR chains that are over-built, we have plenty of white space in markets of all sizes,” Bazner noted that A&W is the only restaurant chain owned by its franchisees, which is very appealing to prospective operators.
