5 Questions With...Brett Allan, Director of IT and Analytics

Describe your role at A&W using just 3 words. 

Restaurant data analysis.

If you could switch jobs with anyone else at A&W, who would it be and why?

I would change jobs with an FGL (Field Growth Leader).  They have a challenging and rewarding job.  They’re the main point of contact for most franchisees. They interact with every part of the A&W restaurant support team, and they directly impact the success of the A&W franchise restaurants.  

What’s one thing people would be surprised to know about you? 

I plan to visit every continent. I have 3 more to visit: Africa, Australia, and Antarctica. 

Favorite A&W menu item? 

Mini Polar Swirl! 

If you could share a Root Beer Float with anyone in the world, who would it be and why? 

Adam Savage from Mythbusters. I saw him speak at a conference and he had some amazing stories. I imagine that he has many more after spending 14 years traveling the world “busting” myths.
