Copper Branch Opens First U.S. Location in New York City

Plant-based eatery continues to lead the ‘Food Revolution’ charge by branching out to Lower Manhattan

Copper Branch, a Canadian-headquartered plant-based fast casual eatery with over 30 locations in Canada has announced it will open its first location in the United States on February 1st. The new location will be situated in the SOHO/Greenwich Village area of Lower Manhattan at 195 Bleecker Street, best known for art galleries, trendy shops and eateries as well as the NYU campus.

Rio Infantino, the CEO of Copper Branch and a veteran restaurant franchise owner, states, “New York City was a clear choice for our first U.S. location as it provides great visibility for the brand and is one of the world’s most recognized active and forward-thinking cities.”  Mr. Infantino further states, “Like our brand ethos, NYC epitomizes strong roots while simultaneously being dynamic and embracing the future.”

The first Copper Branch opened in 2014 in downtown Montreal. Since then it has received worldwide recognition amongst vegans, flexitarians, and health conscious consumers. Copper Branch locations are franchisee-run and the company provides a turnkey approach whereby all restaurants are successfully managed by implementing trusted and proven systems to assure that food quality, customer service, and brand image are maintained at every location. In addition to the more than 30 locations in Canada and the new restaurant in New York City, Copper Branch is on schedule to open 15-20 locations in the U.S. by the end of 2019 in California, Massachusetts, Colorado and Florida.
