A&W introduces bison burger in Saskatchewan
For a limited time, beginning on Sept. 23, A&W is bringing prairie-raised Bison Burger exclusively to restaurants across Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan is a province proud of the role its agriculture plays in Canada and on the world stage,” says Susan Senecal, A&W Canada’s president and chief executive officer. “We are proud to support the hard work and innovation of Canadian ranchers, and excited to bring our new Bison Burger to Saskatchewan.”
Saskatchewan is home to the 46th A&W restaurants, with the 47th opening in Saskatoon this year and the 48th to open next year in Regina. These are owned by franchisees, many of whom grew up on local farms and several are still farmers themselves. Their restaurants employ more than 1,500 people from communities across the province, and the company has a long-standing commitment to investing in Saskatchewan, including a $5 million commitment to the Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence at the University of Saskatchewan and raising more than $1 million for MS in the province.
