A&W Restaurants Logo History

Image

A&W Restaurants, Inc. is a chain of fast-food restaurants, distinguished by their draft root beer and root beer floats. It is a fast food franchise company in the United States and in many other locations around the world, serving a typical fast food menu of hamburgers and french fries, as well as hot dogs. A number of its outlets are drive-in restaurants with carhops. The company name was taken from the last name initials of partners Roy Allen and Frank Wright. A&W began in 1919 in Lodi, California, when Roy Allen took on partnership with Frank Wright to help him with the root beer business he had started in 1919. They branded their product A&W Root Beer after their last names.
The logo is a fairly simple logo with the letter A&W written on an orange and brown oval background. The letters A&W are taken from the last name of the founds Roy Allen and Frank Wright. I suppose the colors probably represent the color of root beer, but I am not sure of that claim. The logo has undergone many changes since its inception and the section below documents the history of those changes. For the most part, the logo has remained the same (the A&W theme being central to the logo)
