Lower Cost Of Goods
A&W’s Advantageous Supply Chain Relationships
When you join the A&W franchise family, you gain access to our long-established connections within the industry, providing you with a significant advantage in terms of cost savings. Our strong relationships with partners in the supply chain enable us to negotiate favorable pricing on goods and inventory, directly benefiting our franchisees. To put it into perspective, over half (54%) of restaurateurs claim that inventory is their biggest source of financial strain. By leveraging our extensive network and industry knowledge, we can secure competitive prices and pass on these savings to our franchise partners, so they can put their money toward further growing their business instead.
By benefiting from lower costs for goods and inventory, A&W franchisees can enjoy some peace of mind and focus more on supporting their staff and serving their communities. With the assurance of competitive pricing, franchisees can allocate their resources more effectively, whether it’s investing in staff, improving the guest experience, or expanding marketing efforts. This freedom enables franchisees to prioritize building strong connections with their local community, delivering exceptional service, and fostering long-lasting guest loyalty.
Insightful Forecasting and Strategic Planning
We also understand the importance of staying ahead of market trends and anticipating potential challenges. Thanks to our established connections and close collaboration with our supply chain partners, we have valuable insight into factors such as potential shortages, pricing fluctuations, and emerging industry trends. This foresight allows us to proactively plan and adjust our business strategies, ensuring that we can effectively meet the demands of our guests and provide the best possible service.
Supporting Franchisee Growth
At A&W, we are deeply committed to the development of our franchise partners’ business. Our support extends beyond just providing cost savings. We offer comprehensive assistance in various aspects of franchise operations. From initial training to ongoing support in marketing, operations, and management, we equip our franchisees with the necessary tools and guidance to thrive in their businesses.
“A&W is 100% committed to the growth of our franchise partners’ business,” says Paul Martino, COO and President of A&W. “We only have two company restaurants, as company restaurants tend to divert the focus of a franchise business. We have two: one where we do all of our training for our new franchise partners, and one where we do testing. Otherwise, we are 100% dedicated to our franchise partners. We talk about our franchise partner sales every day, at every meeting. Every member of the Restaurant Support Center team here is focused strictly on our franchise partners. And we talk about that all the time.”
