A&W Drive In - 1404 E. Weber on Southeast corner Weber and Sierra Nevada -  Now auto storage lot - On June 20, 1919, Roy Allen opened a roadside root beer stand in 
Lodi, California, using a formula he had purchased from a pharmacist. In 1920, Allen became partners with Frank Wright and the two combined their initials and called their 
product A&W Root Beer. It has been mistakenly spread in some circles that A&W stands for Alice and Willard Marriot, which has arisen because Mr. Marriot's first business 
was an A&W franchise A&W Drive In - 1404 E. Weber on Southeast corner Weber and Sierra Nevada
