A&W, Texaco Star Food Marts Team Up
John Phillips, Regal president and incoming president of the Texas Petroleum Marketers Association, announced the expansion with A&W, the country's original franchise restaurant chain.
Regal's first A&W Restaurant will open around June 15, in a Texaco Star Food Mart in San Angelo according to Doug Phillips, vice president who oversees operations at the location.
The new A&W will be a 1,120 square feet dine-in facility for 25-30 persons with drive-thru service. Regal's new Star Mart location will feature A&W's famous All American menu of hamburgers, hot dogs, sides and their signature A&W draft root beer and frosty root beer floats.
Phillips said, "Our second A&W co-brand will be located in Grape Creek, Texas, and construction will begin soon.''
"Regal Oil and the Phillips family reflect the caliber of franchisee that A&W is seeking. We are extremely pleased to have them join A&W as a franchise partner,'' added Clint Hamet, Director of Franchise Development for Yorkshire Global Restaurants.
Yorkshire Global Restaurants, Inc. is the parent company of A&W Restaurants and Long John Silver's. Headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky, Yorkshire operates and franchises more than 2100 restaurants worldwide with annual sales of $1.3 billion.
