MONTREAL — A&W Food Services of Canada keeps expanding in Quebec and plans to open more than 10 new urban franchises in Montreal by 2020. The urban franchise initiative — a proven success in major Canadian cities — is part of a bold, Canada-wide expansion strategy that aims to open 200 A&W restaurants across the country, including 70 in Quebec alone, by 2020.
“For many people, starting a new year means taking stock of their skills and assessing their options,” says Yanick Morin, National director, Franchise Development at A&W. “This is especially true for new Quebecers that move to Montreal with the drive to succeed in a highly competitive market. The Urban Franchise Program was designed to give them the opportunity to launch their business using A&W’s proven franchise system.”
The program is designed for Montreal’s entrepreneurs and new Quebecers arriving in Montreal looking to be their own boss, take on new challenges and build their financial future. “I moved to Quebec in 2008 when I was 17,” says Tim Pérez, business partner and Operations manager for the three A&W locations he owns with his father.
Comprehensive information on the Urban Franchise Program can be found on the new website, which was specifically designed to improve user experience when looking for more details.
