A&W Malaysia spreads Love and Hope amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic

Distribution of over 1,000 sets of A&W meals nationwide for our front lines

As the spread of the Covid-19 virus continues across the globe, we urge the nation to stay strong and continue to have faith in the enforcement of the movement control order (MCO). While we face one of the most unprecedented times in history, it is proven that we are able to rise from hardships. Crisis invoke the most inspiring stories and ambitions amongst us and this is what A&W fundamentally believes in – spreading joy and hope to the people.

Each and every individual in this country plays an imperative role in battling this war against a common enemy. While our medical personnel work tireless treating those who have fallen victim to the virus, we mustn’t forget our delivery riders and police officers who are assisting the nation in reducing movement throughout this MCO period. Without them, we wouldn’t have been able to see a decline in numbers of the pandemic.

With this in mind, A&W launched a preliminary CSR campaign aimed at thank our devoted riders and our fellow police officers for all their sacrifices and hard work. If it is not for the riders, our customers are unable to enjoy their favorite meals safely with their families at home. We certainly owe it to our officers too for safeguarding our borders despite the imminent danger of contracting the virus.

Thus, on the 18th and 24th April 2020, our nationwide crew at A&W distributed set meals of Grilled Chicken Burger and RB 600ml to all delivery riders and police officers respectively. It was a heartwarming moment to witness the smiles and joy engraved on their faces as they received our meals and we hope this brings them hope and strength in combating this crisis.

“In light of this national crisis, strict health and sanitization measures are taken seriously by our crew in all our outlets. A&W will continue to bring joy through our meals as we stand by our country during this unprecedented time in history with the core belief of spreading love and hope. We hope our contributions help empower our frontlines to triumph over adversity” said CEO of A&W Malaysia, George Ang.

To our customers, partners, and fellow Malaysians, we are grateful for your loyal support, and we promise to stand united with you during this challenging time and look forward to a promising future.

From all of us at A&W Malaysia, we wish you, your families, and your friends to stay strong, practice good hygiene and stay at home.
