Copper Branch is taking its plant-based menu across Canada and beyond, with 15 additional restaurants opening soon. Introduced in Montreal in 2014, the vegan eatery is one of the leaders in the category, offering a fresh alternative to the usual fast-casual fare, serving 100 percent plant-based power foods designed for health-conscious time-strapped consumers. Currently the fast growing chain has 28 locations in Quebec and Ontario and about 15 more are in various stages of development and are opening soon. In the Fall, the chain will enter the Alberta market with several openings. Units are scheduled for Intact Place, Bankers Hall and the Suncor Energy Tower in Calgary and in Edmonton at 10310 Jasper Ave. and in South Edmonton Commons. Copper Branch is already looking ahead and aims to have a presence coast to coast. Its immediate interest is to open in Vancouver and to continue to expand in Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. Ideal units are 1,250 to 2,000 square feet in open-air centres and office towers and 450 to 1,500 square feet in enclosed malls. Tony Flanz at Think Retail is responsible for the Copper Branch real estate search in the larger reginal malls nationally and Corey Bessner and Matthew Krantzberg of Core Consultants Realty are handling the site selection in open centres and streets in Quebec. Stephen Travers, the Area Developer for Alberta is handling the Alberta site selection. Copper Branch is also about to become an international concern with an opening in Brest in northwest France in the Fall and in Annecy in southeastern France in Winter 2019.
