We turn off the lights. And not just when we close.

Every watt counts.

We’re always looking for ways to make our restaurants run more efficiently, so at an A&W in Edmonton, Alberta we outfitted each piece of equipment with a smart meter designed to gauge energy use. From the data collected, we found that there were numerous small but meaningful improvements that could be made. Now, we are in the process of rolling out these improvements across all 840 A&W restaurants in Canada.

high-efficiency filter fryers

Saving energy, one fry at a time.

Another way that we’re cutting back our energy consumption is through the use of high-efficiency filter fryers. 169 of our restaurants already have these new fryers, which use less oil and half the gas of traditional fryers. That’s a lot less energy for a lot more delicious rings and fries.
