The property is awaiting site plan approval to construct a second A&W outlet at 659 Great Northern Road ideally located to service new hotels in the area such as Fairfield Inn & Suites and the new Microtel Inn & Suites opening soon, as well as strategically targeting travellers taking the Second Line bypass in and out of the city.
A free standing A&W with a drive thru is planned for the area, likely taking in the new “Urban Style” franchises. The property was formerly Personal Touch Auto that moved a block north a few months ago.
A&W Food Services Canada had been expanding throughout the country opening their 800th unit in 2013, another 40 new locations are planned for 2104.
No word on when the new place will be opened, construction is expected to start soon.
