About A&W

A&W Restaurants, Inc. is a 96-year-old iconic American brand. Since December 2011, when A&W was purchased by a partnership of domestic and international franchisees, the Worldwide Headquarters has been located here in Lexington, Kentucky. A&W is excited to be building all new prototype restaurants in Lexington and to become a pillar of the community.

A&W Root Beer is made fresh in the restaurants today, just as is was back in 1919 when it all began. Using quality ingredients like real cane sugar and a proprietary blend of herbs, bark and spices, it’s still caffeine free and served up in a cold, frosty mug.
