A Canadian vegan burger chain is coming to British Columbia, with its first location opening in the province’s capital city.

The burger chain, called Odd Burger, will open at 790 Fisgard St. in downtown Victoria on May 18.

The company says there will be room for more than 16 people inside the restaurant, as well as an outdoor patio.

Odd Burger launched in Ontario in 2017, in what the company calls Canada’s “first vegan fast-food restaurant.”

Since then, it’s expanded to multiple locations in Ontario, as well as Alberta and Saskatchewan.

The new Victoria location is among a trio of new Odd Burger joints opening this month.

Another location is opening in Edmonton, AB, on May 11, and the third is opening in Ottawa, ON, on June 1.

A second B.C. location is slated to open in Vancouver as well, though no timeline has been announced yet for that spot.

“We are absolutely elated to finally see all of these locations opening after so much hard work from our franchisees, area reps and corporate team members,” said James McInnes, CEO and co-founder of Odd Burger, in a release Thursday.

“We believe they will service a key demographic for us and will open a lot of growth possibilities as new customers get to experience Odd Burger for the first time,” he said.

Odd Burger notes that while the locations are expected to open in May, exact dates are variable due to final inspections by municipalities.
