Odd Burger Signs Agreement for 40 New Fast-Food Locations in Ontario

By Adriano Marchese

Vegan fast-food chain Odd Burger Corp. has signed an agreement with a real-estate and franchise-development firm to open 40 new locations in the province of Ontario over the course of this decade.

Odd Burger signed an area representative agreement with Starke Investments whereby Starke would oversee franchise sales to individual owners, store construction and provide support for franchises in its territory, Odd Burger said Thursday.

These kinds of agreements outline a yearly development quota and outline a growth trajectory in each territory in which it operates, the company said.

Odd Burger made a similar agreement in March with Sai-Ganesh Enterprises to bring 36 locations to Alberta and British Columbia over the next seven years.

In total, Odd Burger has 92 locations in operation or under area development agreements in Canada.

“Partnering with Starke Investments will allow Odd Burger to continue its rapid expansion across North America… [and] also brings fantastic industry knowledge to Odd Burger, as well as a valuable network of landlord relationships and prospective franchisees,” Co-Founder and Chief Executive James McInnes said.
