VANCOUVER, Aug. 28, 2018 /CNW/ - A&W is joining forces with Uber Eats to make ordering and enjoying A&W's menu options more convenient and accessible to all. The move is part of the burger chain's strategy to reach more consumers who are looking for the convenience of delivery and the great taste of A&W.
"We're constantly looking for ways to better serve our guests and to make the A&W experience available to all, even if they can't come into a restaurant," says Susan Senecal, A&W Canada's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Working with Uber Eats made perfect sense given our guests are already using delivery apps to get delicious food to their front door, office or while sitting in a park."
Where Uber Eats operates, Canadians can now order all A&W menu items through the app. For those who don't have the chance to visit a restaurant, it's a new way to enjoy their A&W favourites from the comfort of home or wherever they might be.
"Uber Eats is committed to delivering your favourite foods at the tap of a button. We are thrilled to be providing Canadians coast-to-coast another way to experience A&W. I am personally excited to order the iconic Teen burger and root beer right to my door," said Dan Park, General Manager of Uber Eats Canada.
A&W Food Services of Canada Inc. is Canada's original and fastest growing quick service burger chain. It is 100 per cent Canadian owned and is one of the strongest brand names in the Canadian foodservice industry.
