A&W Restaurants, Inc. is a group of fast-food restaurants famous for their beverages, particularly their draft root beer and their root beer float. It all started when founder Roy W. Allen opened a root beer stand in Lodi, California in 1919. In 1923, Allen and one of his employees Frank Wright opened the first ever A&W restaurant in Sacramento, California.
The letters in the restaurant’s name came from the initials of the two founders. A&W then became a famous go-to place of Americans for frosty mugs – a technique where mugs are kept in a freezer and will then be filled with cold root beer and served right away to the customer.
Franchising began in 1925 and as of today, there are already 16 countries with A&W restaurants. Aside from their famous drinks, they also serve hamburgers, fries, and hotdogs.
