For 60 years, the Welch family has been operating the A&W Restaurant in Franksville, Wisconsin, but when construction began on a major highway where the restaurant was located, the restaurant’s future was in doubt.

Located off I-94 and Highway K, the A&W Restaurant’s property became land-locked when construction began to expand I-94 into an eight-lane highway. The restaurant was forced to use a highway on-ramp as a driveway, which limited accessibility for customers. In order to keep the family business operating, Brittany Welch, Site and Marketing Manager, set out to rebuild the restaurant in a new location. “

We were lucky that there was land available on the other side of the interstate highway, so we started to rebuild,” said Welch.
