Lauren Knarr and Rooty the Great Root Bear

5 Questions With...Lauren Knarr, CAD Designer

For our latest '5 Questions With...' we spoke to Lauren Knarr, CAD Designer, who is part of A&W's Design and Construction team. Read on to discover Lauren's advice for her 16-year-old self, the person she would share a Root Beer Float with, and more. 

Can you describe your role at A&W using only 3 words?

Cool 3D drawings.

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

I’m very spontaneous. I’ve been skydiving and bungee jumping, and I’ve even swam with a tiger shark. I love anything and everything that gives me adrenaline. 

Favorite A&W menu item?

Oh, that’s easy peasy — Onion Rings with a side of Papa Sauce!

What advice would you give to your 16-year-old self? 

Success and happiness are on the other side of fear. If you want something, GO FOR IT! Never knowing is scarier than just doing…and you’ll always feel satisfied that you took a chance.

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

I’m going to have to go with Selena Gomez. I admire her vulnerability and compassion. I think she’d be a pretty inspiring person to have a Root Beer Float with.
