A&W, A Leader in the Quick Service Restaurant Industry

A&W is Canada’s second largest quick service restaurant (QSR) burger chain. This study looks into A&W’s business practices and ability to maintain and develop the business around changing consumer preferences. More specifically, A&W looked at millennials and used this generation to reposition and differentiate themselves towards a market that is changing the ways of the restaurant industry.

With frosted Root Beer mugs a traditional aspect of A&W, the company’s sustainable roots started during the drive-in days.
