A&W Restaurants are a chain of fast food restaurants known for its draft root beer and root beer floats. A&W was actually the first successful franchise company: the franchises began around 1921 in California. The company's name was taken from the surnames of partners Roy W. Allen and Frank Wright. The menu of A&W includes hamburgers, french fries, hot dogs and other fast food style meals. A&W has restaurants across the United States. A&W exists in Canada, however it is owned by a different company than the original American company. [3]
