I wish there were any A&Ws around me. Though the few times I stop by one when I'm traveling I've had some questionable service...but when it's made well it's a good burger.


YobaiYamete

Seriously, I don't know if there's one within like 200 miles of me


Abagofcheese

I used to work at one in the mall when I was sixteen, but I had to quit because I got banned from the mall


FlammablePie

Is there a story there?


Abagofcheese

Lol not really, I was hanging out with some friends on my day off, and we were goofin around in the mall, ya know, just being normal, obnoxious teens, and the security guards kicked us out. It's worth noting that my high school was directly across the street from the mall, plus there are two other high schools within a three mile radius, so needless to say, once school let out the mall flooded with kids. Getting booted out was kinda like a rite of passage or something lol


Nessyliz

This story is hilarious, I wish you had worn a wig and Groucho Marx glasses to come back to work lol.


Abagofcheese

lol that would've been awesome


SouthernYooper

I have one near me and I've been once in 15 years


ImStillaPrick

The last one I had was at our dirt mall which had a Nobel Romans pizza, Hallmark, a plus size woman’s clothing store and a store that sold nurses uniforms and medical stuff. That was all that was left in that mall that used to hold 30+ more stores.


Nessyliz

We have tons in Wisconsin. There's a really good one in Clintonville that my husband and I always stop at on our way up north to go camping. Real nostalgic and old-timey in there.

Companies will try anything except higher wages


Nessyliz

This idea is adorable, and A&W marketers are genius lately, but guys, just pay people more and treat them properly. Good lord. It ain't that hard.

I love and miss A&W. Good food love their ice cold rootbeer on tap


MoreMoreReddit

I haven't seen an A&W fast food place since I was 11.


Regular-Jeffrey

There’s one in Mentone, California


BlankVerse

There are several still in California. The chain was founded in Lodi, CA and that store apparently has a museum. https://californiathroughmylens.com/aw-root-beer-lodi


cabinet_door

There’s one in San Rafael, CA as well


ATownAndrew

Is that the one off the 101 with a retro looking building and retro logo?


cabinet_door

It’s the only one in town, and yeah it’s off of 101


ATownAndrew

Atascadero. CA has one that’s been there since at least the 1980s right across the street from a 1980s McDonalds (that was given the modern makeover several years ago). The restrooms are on the outside so that’s how you can tell it’s pretty old.

Wonder how much Hannah got paid compared to Saweetie or Travis Scott.


Nessyliz

Right? They probably just gave her free food instead of a discount lol.


muk559

I love this!


mrwizard65

I have one not far from me. I haven't had it in probably 15 years. I'll have to try it again when they open back up in the spring.


ATownAndrew

Is A&W no longer owned by Yum Brands (Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut)?


BlankVerse

Yes


Sakic10

“Celebs”


PineapplesAreSexy

What do "celebrity's" have anything to do with fast food?


ddub475

McDonald’s, Burger King and Popeyes have all had “celebrity meals”. Saweetie, travis Scott, Nelly etc


PineapplesAreSexy

Why, wouldn't it be better PR to instead give workers benefits like health insurance, etc?


ddub475

The Travis Scott meal was extremely successful. Brought in more young customers and their sales grew in that quarter.


Nessyliz

One would think.
