Vegan fast-food chain Odd Burger, based in Canada, has launched its franchising operations in the United States, according to a press release.
The brand has formed a Delaware corporation that will serve as the franchisor of, and that will operate, Odd Burger’s U.S. franchise division. Odd Burger U.S. has completed the preparation of its initial Franchise Disclosure Document and Franchise Agreement for use in the United States and intends to begin offering and selling franchises in 25 U.S. states.
Odd Burger U.S. will also begin the process of filing its franchise offering with additional U.S. States where filings are required to be completed prior to any offers or sales. The process is expected to be completed by the end of November 2022.
“We could not be more excited to initiate our U.S. expansion and extend our brand to millions of people in the U.S. market,” James McInnes, co-founder and CEO of Odd Burger, said in the release. “We have already received hundreds of inquiries from potential franchisees in the U.S. and now we will begin the process of finding the perfect franchise partners to work with.”
Odd Burger is the first vegan chain to go public. It is traded on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol ODD.
