A&W Root Beer is a root beer franchise in the United States and Canada that was started in 1919 by Roy Allen.[1] In 1922, Allen partnered with Frank Wright. They combined their initials to create the brand "A&W" and inspired a restaurant chain in 1922. The first A&W root beer drinks were sold for five cents. [2] A&W's international headquarters are located in Malaysia[3].
