Outside Canada, the rights to the A & W brand are owned by Dr. Pepper-Snapple Group, which in turn licenses the brand to the similarly named U.S.-based restaurant chain; A & W products are distributed via various U.S. bottlers. A & W Food Services of Canada, which is independent of both DPSG and the U.S. chain, is responsible for the restaurants and the marketing of root beer products in that country, with retail products bottled and distributed by The Coca-Cola Company. The U.S. variant is also sold as an import drink in Southeast Asia and Italy (where A&W has restaurants), as well as Australia, and Chile, among other countries.
