Fast food chain A&W has set its sights on Haliburton, with a representative telling the Echo that a restaurant might be constructed in the area sometime in the next year.
Franchise sales manager for A&W Food Services, Sam Wootton said plans for the restaurant are underway, as location details are being finalized.
Wootton was in town this week to look for a franchisee for the restaurant.
The manager believes Haliburton is an ideal setting and that the Highlands makes for a perfect backdrop for the restaurant, as it has a high volume of traffic during the summer months.
The Haliburton Highlands has been on the radar for A&W for a while, due to the attraction and demographics of the area, said Wootton.
