Some Facts About A&W Canada

A&W Food Services of Canada, Inc. is a Canadian fast food restaurant chain. The first Canadian A&W restaurant opened in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1956. A&W is known best for their root beer.

The logos are similar but you can see the very noticable difference.

A&W Canada was part of the U.S.-based A&W Restaurants chain, but was sold to Unilever in 1972. In 1995 Unilever sold the company. It no longer has any corporate connection to A&W operations outside of Canada. Since then, it’s grown to become the second largest food-fast chain in Canada following a slightly controversial expansion campaign that started in 2010. The company has more locations than the United States even though the population is smaller in Canada.

Originally introduced in the ‚Äô60s‚ÄĒa bygone age when A&W was still unified‚ÄĒthe Burger Family was phased out in the ‚Äô80s, only to be resurrected in the ‚Äô90s. Like its name suggests, it‚Äôs comprised of a series of hamburgers named after family members‚ÄĒthe Grandpa Burger, the Uncle Burger, the Papa Burger, the Mama Burger, the Teen Burger, and the Buddy Burger.
