Just months after Ontario’s Odd Burger – a popular plant-based fast food chain – announced a franchise deal for its first BC location in Victoria, news has emerged that a Vancouver outpost is also in preparation.
Odd Burger has revealed that the Vancouver store will be operated by Stephen and James Wall, who are in the process of finding a location.
“Our Vancouver site is expected to open within three months of site selection and permit approval,” Odd Burger explained in the announcement.
“This city is ready for more plant-based options, especially at a reasonable price, and we believe Odd Burger is the right opportunity for us as franchisees as well as for Vancouver,” Stephen Wall said in a press release. . “We are currently evaluating the best sites and look forward to being up and running.”
In Victoria, the process is still underway to launch Odd Burger, although these local franchisees have made an offer to lease what they believe to be a promising site in the city centre.
“The pioneer of the vegan fast food concept recently signed a regional representation agreement with Saskatoon-based Sai-Ganesh Enterprises to open 36 Odd Burger locations in the western provinces of Alberta and British Columbia over the next next seven years,” the company’s press release said.
What is Odd Burger?
Launched in 2014 as a produce delivery service, which evolved into a plant-based meal kit company, Odd Burger has grown from its grassroots beginnings to a vegan fast food staple in its Ontario native. With multiple locations across the province, including Toronto, Windsor and Waterloo, Odd Burger is already doubling its national presence, with additional locations planned in Ontario, as well as a first foray into the Calgary.
The Odd Burger menu offers several types of burgers, including riffs on fast food classics (the famous burger with its double meat and cheese, secret sauce and shredded lettuce looks like something out of “Golden Arches”, while that the Vopper’s name immediately conjures up a royally popular burger). They also have a chicken alternative (what they call “ChickUn”) sandwiches and strips, breakfast, salads, wraps and sides, and drinkable shakes – all completely plant-based. .
