Ontario-based vegan burger chain reveals location of first Vancouver restaurant

So far they're only open in Ontario and Calgary
Odd Burger, the Ontario-based fast-food chain, serves up burgers, fries, shakes, and more comfort classics, and it's all plant-based. The first Vancouver location is now in the works.

Mount Pleasant will be the home to the first Odd Burger in Metro Vancouver.

The Toronto-based vegan fast-food chain has revealed the location of their first spot in the Lower Mainland: 2821 Main St.

It'll be one of the first two in B.C., with another location in Victoria planned. Which will open first is unclear.

"This city is ready for more plant-based options, especially at a reasonable price, and we think Odd Burger is the right opportunity for us as franchisees as well as for Vancouver," said Stephen Wall in a prior media release. 

Odd Burger launched in 2014 and has taken a bit of a winding road to becoming a vegan fast food change. Initially, it was a produce delivery service. That transformed into a plant-based meal kit service in Ontario. Then it became a food truck and finally, in 2017, they launched a restaurant. Shortly after they opened what they claim is the world's first 24-hour vegan drive-thru.

The company announced its intentions for a west coast takeover at the beginning of 2022 and has been working to open the two B.C. locations since.

A couple of years ago the burger chain announced an agreement and intentions to open 36 Odd Burgers in Alberta and B.C. over the next few years. Currently, they have one, in Calgary, open, and another in Edmonton planner, along with the two B.C. locations.

They've also recently signed a deal for 20 locations in Washington State.

The Vancouver property Odd Burger is taking over has been empty for a couple of years, having been a Flight Centre before the Covid-19 pandemic.
