Vegan fast-food chain Odd Burger has officially opened its first western Canada location in Calgary.
The grand opening event took place on Saturday, Dec. 10, and included several special offers, while 25 per cent of sales were donated to the Animal Save Movement.
The Calgary Odd Burger is the first location set to open outside of Ontario and marks a significant milestone for the company as expands its footprint across Canada. Franchisees Jay and Joanna Gandhi opened the new location, one of the largest Odd Burger restaurants to date at nearly 1500 square feet, featuring more than 20 seats and a large patio space.
“We are beyond excited to open our first western Canada location in Calgary…,” says James McInnes, CEO and co-founder of Odd Burger. “The anticipation is extraordinary and the upcoming expansion into Western Canada demonstrates Odd Burger’s successful growth into distant geographic locations.”
Recently, the company also celebrated the grand opening of its Brampton, Ont., location on Nov. 12. The event was attended by hundreds of people, making it one of Odd Burger’s best-attended events. Franchisees Divneet Kaur and Jay Ahluwalia donated a portion of opening day sales to the Animal Save Movement in support of the Plant-Based Treat–an initiative that puts food systems at the heart of combating the climate crisis.
The company has also secured a location in Victoria, B.C., and will be drafting permits for approval by the city. The franchised location is approximately 1300 sf (121 m2) with a large patio.
