New Restaurant to Open


SWEETWATER COUNTY — An A&W Restaurant is setting up shop in Sweetwater County.

The restaurant, famous for its root beer, is projected to open around Halloween. It will share the same building as Cruel Jack’s Travel Plaza, 8 Purple Sage Road, Rock Springs.

The opening date is uncertain since equipment is being shipped from areas affected by recent hurricanes, said Sam Shahram, managing member of Fast Stop Stores LLC.

The restaurant, which makes its root beer fresh with real sugar, also offers an American food menu that consists of items like hamburgers and hot dogs.

Shahram said the restaurant will be located inside along with CJ Café. He said he wants to develop a food court in the building.

The café will be open 24/7, while A&W hours will tentatively be 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
