Globally Local Technologies Inc. founder of one of the world’s first vegan fast-food chains and first to go public, has announced it will rebrand as Odd Burger Corporation.

Along with the renaming of the parent company, its restaurant chain will receive a new name, image, website, and brand: Odd Burger. Currently, operating locations will be rebranded as Odd Burger, and all locations opening this summer will carry the new name.

The rebrand includes new design elements including emoji-inspired characters, anthropomorphic chickpeas – the base of the chain’s beloved burgers – and a contemporary black, white, and pink colour scheme. Odd Burger’s “personality” will be incorporated into its food packaging, interior and exterior signage, interior design, social media content, staff apparel, and merchandise.

“Our decision to rebrand is an essential part of our strategy to create a global fast-food chain that is able to connect with people everywhere,” said Globally Local CEO James McInnes. “Being on the verge of expansion into new communities meant thinking about how to express who we are and what we stand for in a more meaningful and powerful way. We are proud to be doing things differently and reclaiming the notion of ‘odd,’ because changing the norm is what’s needed to solve the sustainability challenges in our food system.”

Globally Local Technologies currently operates a manufacturing facility and two restaurants in Canada, with plans to open 20 additional locations across North America in the next 12 months.
