A&W is taking over Toronto one neighbourhood at a time
If you're craving a teen burger in Toronto, you'll soon be able to grab one nearly anywhere in the city.
In Maclean's February issue, writer Murad Hemmadi details the Canadian burger chain's aggressive urban expansion. It began opening new urban concept restaurants - with sleek glass facades - in Toronto back in 2010.
And according to Hemmadi, the company now has 35 of them. By focusing on Ontario and Quebec, A&W plans to triple that number.
"A&W already has significant presence in suburban areas, but there is a great opportunity in busy urban areas," says Yanick Morin, A&W's national direct of franchise development via email.
"As one of the fastest growing city centres in North America, Toronto's unique appeal is driving growth, and we are eager to be part of that,"
There's now an A&W at the corner of College and Ossington, as well as locations in other high-traffic areas including Queen West, the Danforth, South Core and the Financial District.
