VANCOUVER — After much fanfare surrounding its new urban concept, A&W Food Services of Canada Inc. has opened the doors to its inaugural Ontario location at 496 Yonge Street.
This comes after the launch of four urban locations, three in Vancouver and one in Calgary. “We are excited about this new A&W restaurant concept for our urban customers here in Toronto,” said Paul Hollands, A&W president and CEO. “We have seen great success with the Vancouver urban locations we opened in the last several months. There has been tremendous growth here in Ontario over the last couple of years with 15 restaurants opening in 2010. “The new sleek-designed concept offers the brand’s traditional fare alongside new urban-focused menu items such as salads and chicken sandwiches, including the Spicy Chipotle Chicken. Other store highlights, include free Wi-Fi, self-serve kiosks and an extensive waste reduction plan.
This year the concept is expected to expand in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Calgary.
