Canada’s Vegan Chain Copper Branch Opens First US Location

Copper Branch—which operates more than 30 locations in Canada—will serve power bowls, burgers, and smoothies in New York City, with plans to expand to 150 locations worldwide by 2020.


Canadian plant-based chain Copper Branch will open its first location in the United States in November in New York City’s Greenwich Village neighborhood. The eatery will serve bowls, soups, sandwiches, burgers, wraps, salads, desserts, and smoothies accentuated by “power foods” such as chia seeds, organic kamut, and turmeric. “New York City was a clear choice for our first US location as it provides great visibility for the brand and is one of the world’s most recognized active and forward-thinking cities,” Copper Branch CEO Rio Infantino said. Founded in 2014 in Montreal, the company currently operates more than 30 locations in Canada and plans to expand to an 80 additional locations by 2019, and 150 global outposts by 2020.
