TORONTO, ON, Nov. 29, 2021 – Odd Burger Corporation, one of the world’s first vegan fast-food chains and the first to go public, today announced it has signed a franchise agreement for its first Ottawa location, continuing its expansion plans throughout Canada.
Franchisees Charlotte Dietz and Leo Grant are currently seeking a site to introduce Ottawa to Odd Burger’s affordable, mainstream, healthy, satisfying vegan fast food.
“Odd-awa is key to making Odd Burger a national chain, and we now have the right partners to bring our brand to the capital,” said James McInnes, Odd Burger co-founder and CEO. “We think this community is ready for superior fast food and our classic menu of burgers, wings, and shakes, from wholesome ingredients like chickpeas, jackfruit, and fresh veggies.”
The Ottawa location is projected to open within three months of site selection and permit approvals. It will follow the model of Odd Burger’s successful restaurants in the GTA – compact footprints optimized for fast service, takeout and delivery, affordability, and simplified employee training. Odd Burger smart kitchens feature modern on-demand cooking technology, online ordering, self-checkout kiosks, and cashless transactions.
Strategic franchises are part of Odd Burger’s plans to expand throughout North America. Odd Burger already has locations in Toronto, London, Windsor, Vaughan, Waterloo, and Hamilton, with a Calgary franchise currently in development. In addition to restaurants, Odd Burger also operates a manufacturing facility in London, ON where it creates its proprietary plant-based proteins and dairy alternatives such as burgers, chickUn fillets, sausage, and dairy-free sauces.
