What Makes Us Different

Meet our Franchisees

Whether through single locations or multi-unit ownership, A&W offers franchise buyers a chance to build a lasting legacy for their families as well as a chance to build equity and a secure future. Our franchisees are made up of a diverse group of experienced and multigenerational entrepreneurs committed to the brand.

“I’m only 32, and I absolutely love what I do,” Walker said. “Sure, I’ve learned a lot from my family, but A&W also wants feedback on what younger generations want. I think that’s why I’m a good fit for the National A&W Franchise Advisory Board (NAWFA). They wanted to learn from us and from our store.”

– Anthony Walker, Baldwin, Wisconsin

“I love seeing innovative ideas like this in my young staff members. Serving both our guests and their dogs creates a strong connection between them and our brand, and it also teaches my staff valuable customer service skills.”

-Dan Ballstadt
