Nearly one hundred years after its creation, A&W Root Beer is the number one selling root beer in the world. The signature Root Beer remains an integral part of the A&W brand, and A&W restaurant locations around the world continue to make the beverage fresh daily.
The huge success of the beverage has contributed to the restaurant chain’s longevity, and customers continue to expect a high level of quality and consistency of the product.
A&W restaurants needed a cost-effective method to achieve a consistent, high quality product that could be implemented across all operations.
Previously, there were two methods restaurants used to produce A&W’s signature Root Beer:
AyrKing came alongside A&W to develop the AyrKing Beverage Syrup Stirrer.
This tailored solution automates the mixing process, saving operators hours of hand-mixing each day while yielding a more consistent product. Because the machine is easy to operate, all team members are now able to make fresh Root Beer.
The switch has enabled A&W to eliminate the need for Bag-in-the-Box products, saving operators thousands of dollars every year and improving beverage freshness, quality and consistency.
