"We are thrilled to have been named Franchisor of the Year," said Yanick Morin. "It's a great honour to have our success recognized by the franchise industry. 2015 was a great year for A&W, as we opened 11 new restaurants in Québec, reached the milestone of $1 billion in sales across Canada, and launched a unique program enabling young entrepreneurs aged 35 and under to open their own A&W franchise, with a relatively modest investment, thanks to A&W's financial support. Such resounding success wouldn't have been possible without a dedicated head office team and passionate franchisees! Also, the franchisee group composed of Lyne Gratton, Stéphane Gratton and Marko Bianchi won the award given to the most community-driven franchisees during the Maillon d'Or Awards, which they more than earned. 2016 promises to be just as amazing, as we continue to rapidly expand across Canada and keep innovating, all with great menu items made with high-quality ingredients!"
Indeed, the Canadian chain plans to open 300 new restaurants in Canada over the next five years, including 100 in Québec, and is always looking for quality franchisees in many regions to drive its expansion.
The company now boasts over 120 restaurants in Québec and, besides its stand-alone restaurant concept featuring drive-thru service, offers an innovative urban restaurant concept that has been a tremendous success!" www.awfranchise.ca
