Affiliate Disclosure

A&W Food Services of Canada Inc. is a privately owned company that franchises A&W restaurants across Canada. The majority of shareholders are current and former management. A&W franchises all its restaurants to independent franchisees, except for 10 restaurants that are operated corporately, all of which are in the Ottawa market.

Food Services also markets A&W Root Beer in cans and bottles to the retail grocery trade, through an independent bottler licensed to manufacture and distribute the products. The Fund is a limited purpose trust established to invest in A&W Trade Marks Inc., which indirectly owns the A&W trademarks used in the A&W quick service restaurant business in Canada.

Trade Marks licences these trademarks to A&W Food Services of Canada Inc. in exchange for a royalty of 3 percent of the sales of the restaurants in the Royalty Pool. This structure makes the A&W Revenue Royalties Income Fund a “top-line” fund because income is based solely on the sales of A&W restaurants minus the Fund’s and Trade Marks’ minimal operating expenses, interest on Trade Marks’ term debt, and income taxes.

Use A Winning Investment Strategy

My portfolio is generating over 12% annual returns since 2009. It's not from the beginning of the year or from 2019, it's from 2009 !!! That's a consistent return which means using the rule of 72, I double my portfolio every 6 years.

My approach is simple but you need key data that I have cultivated with the Dividend Snapshot Screeners. No other investment services provide you with easy to understand data but also actionable data. No hidden magic.

In fact, I have tried all of the investment services for dividend investors like a crash test dummy of investment services. Just ask me, and you'll learn why there was nothing I could use out there and that's how the Dividend Snapshot Screeners were borned!
