A&W Restaurants Incorporated is expected to be the first company locating in Lexington’s new industrial park near Interstate 75. The city has 50 acres shovel ready in UK Coldstream Research Campus.
A&W will be relocating their global headquarters and moving some 35 jobs to the new site. Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton is optimistic this is only the start of business growth at the industrial site. “I don’t think we would be in this business doing this if we weren’t," she said.
