In July, Copper Branch announced a partnership with food service provider Compass Group Canada with plans to open 50 locations over the next 10 years, and to provide access to plant-based food options in healthcare and post-secondary settings nationwide.

Copper Branch was founded on the principle of plant-based eating as a way for people to "to live their lives to the ultimate fullest."

"What sets Copper Branch apart from other quick service plant-based restaurants is its commitment to both familiar fare as well as unique global recipes that diners can only get at Copper Branch," explains the company in an e-mailed release.

Their menu offers all-day breakfast options, as well as burgers, sandwiches, soups, sides, 'Power Bowls,' desserts, smoothies, and beverages, all 100 per cent plant-based, with several gluten-free options.

Aimed at being a casual grab-and-go option in the plant-based sector, you can find items like Quinoa Chili, Black Bean Burger, Falafel Wrap, Avocado Toast, kids' meals, and of course - being a Montreal-based chain - a fully plant-based take on Poutine.
Copper Branch is located at 280 Nelson St. in Vancouver's Yaletown neighbourhood.
