Wetaskiwin A&W ranked first in Canada

Out of over 950 stores across Canada, Wetaskiwin’s A&W has come out on top.

Wetaskiwin’s A&W has a reason celebrate this year.

Out of over 950 stores across Canada, Wetaskiwin’s A&W has come out on top, winning the President’s award. Manager Colleen Kruger and her team have stood out among their competitors for outstanding achievement in performance and customer service.

With the President’s award trophy proudly on display, Kruger explains how the recipients are chosen. “It’s based on everything you do,” she says. “Like guest connects, how many guests we interact with, and the sales; its everything.”

Last year Signal Hill in Calgary, Alta. beat out Wetaskiwin’s A&W for the President’s award. Wetaskiwin took second place with the Gold award, putting them in the top three of all A&W restaurants in Canada.

This year they pulled the top spot, solidifying their location’s excellence in “exemplifying the A&W mission,” Kruger says.

Their celebration to mark their accomplishment as President’s choice award winners was scheduled to take place today, Mar. 19, 2020. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 concerns and Government of Alberta mandates on crowds, the event had to be cancelled.

As of yesterday, Mar. 18, Wetaskiwin’s A&W dining area is closed. But with their drive through still operating and ready to serve customers, Wetaskiwin A&W hopes that people will still come and enjoy a meal from Canada’s number one location.
