A&W Restaurants

1648 McGrathiana Pkwy, Lexington, KY 40511

The old-fashioned root beer stand lives on, thanks to this business. A subsidiary of fast-food giant YUM! Brands, A&W Restaurants franchises more than 700 quick-service restaurants in the US and about 15 other countries. The eateries, many of which still offer drive-up service in addition to dine-in seating, offer a menu featuring hamburgers, hot dogs, onion rings, and fries, along with its signature root beer. A&W traces its roots back to a California root beer stand business started by Roy Allen in 1919. YUM! Brands is the world’s largest fast-food franchisor and owns such chains as KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell.

ESG/Ethical Impact

Good food makes good food, but there’s more to our story than that. From using compostable packaging to fundraising to support Canadians living with Multiple Sclerosis, we strive to make a positive impact in our community. Reusable mugs, dishes and cutlery keep over 100 million pieces of single-use packaging from landfills each year. We’re saying “So long!” to plastic straws. As of December 31st, 2018, we’ve switched to 100% compostable, biodegradable and marine degradable paper straws. So now you can sip without the guilt trip. Since 2016, we have donated more than 55,000 pounds of food from our supply chain to charitable organizations across Canada. Canada has one of the highest rates of MS diagnoses in the world. Its effects can be profound and often unpredictable—but we know we can count on you to help. Since 2008, we’ve partnered with MS Canada and this August will be the 15th anniversary of Burgers to Beat MS. Celebrate with us on August 17th, when $2 from every Teen Burger® sold will go to support Canadians living with MS. The MagnusCards® app by Magnusmode creates a stress-free dining experience for guests with developmental or cognitive disabilities. The app’s step-by-step instructions guide guests through everything from ordering their burger to separating out recycling after they finish their meal. It’s a totally free app that makes dining at A&W more accessible for everyone.
