I was searching to see if some of the old A&W merchandise I have laying around was worth anything. And I ran into the obviously dealer related website.
http://storesense1.carrierzone.com/HS8072/Categories.bok?category=A%26W%3ALocal+Store+Marketing&searchpath=914105&start=21&total=58

Wanna buy yourself some free meal coupons?

I try not to eat fast food much either. But if I have to, it's Wendy's, Harvey's (in Edmonton cause there aren't any in Winnipeg), or Burger Factory (in Winnipeg cause there aren't any in Edmonton).

City place has had a A&W for at least 10 years.

There are no Wendy's downtown.. and their onion rings are disgusting... but burgers are okay I guess.

According to something I read (probably a false rumour) it was a financial decision made by the owner.

The square burger allowed optimal storage and less spoilage since there were no air pockets between the burgers when they were stacked.

And on a search of Yahoo Answers:

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=1006011602815

The true reason is that it maximizes the amount of meat used when it's being cut into patties. They roll the meat out into large area "sheets" in the meat packing factory, and then cut the meat patties out from the meat sheets. If they were to cut round burger patties, there would be meat left over (imagine cutting 4 circles adjacent to one another from a piece of paper - the paper that's left is analogous to the meat that would be left if the patties were round).
In that case, they would either waste a lot of extra leftover, unpattied meat, or they would have to gather all of the leftover meat and roll it up into another sheet, flatten it out again and cut more patties - then repeat this until the meat wasted was minimized. This would waste a lot of time.
So rather than waste meat and/or time, Wendy's simply cuts the patties into squares, in which case no extra, waste meat remains after the patties are cut.
