Business Description

The A&W ranked #4 in sales growth for August 2020 (51.9% growth) in its territory. Current ownership purchased the franchise in 2018. Since then, they have invested $80,000 in new equipment, a new storage building, and new point of sale system. The building has been totally repainted inside and out. The dining room has been updated with new light fixtures and the kitchen area has a new A/C system.

This 61-year established A&W restaurant boasts the iconic brand emblematic of American values and simpler times. Their menu is filled with the classics including hot dogs, burgers, shakes, and of course, A&W Root Beer.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the current owners need to sell. They hope to find a buyer who will love the business and community as much as they have, and who will further the outstanding reputation the restaurant has within the community.

New ownership is entering a turn-key facility. (4) Raving Reviews & High Ratings: Strong customer reviews keep clientele coming back and also serve to bring in more new customers.
