The public company has launched its franchising operations in the United States and intends to begin offering and selling franchises in 25 U.S. States, including Vermont.

"We could not be more excited to initiate our U.S. expansion and extend our brand to millions of people in the U.S. market," says McInnes.

"We have already received hundreds of inquiries from potential franchisees in the U.S., and now we will begin the process of finding the perfect franchise partners to work with."

Among the items offered at Odd Burger are the Vopper, the BacUn Famous Melt, the Faconator breakfast sandwich, and three types of poutine.
