A&W to Introduce New Store Prototype
August 19, 2013
A&W Restaurants will introduce a new store prototype in October, according to QSR. The company-owned store will be located in Lexington, Ky., with two additional units under construction in the area. Yum! Brands purchased A&W in 2002, but eventually dropped the brand from its portfolio in late 2011. The brand has been working to rebuild since, and aims to launch an aggressive growth strategy in 2014. At one point in time, A&W had 3,500 restaurants across the country. Currently, the company operates approximately 720 restaurants.
