Odd Burger Corporation (“Odd Burger” or the “Company”) (TSX: ODD) (OTCQB: ODDAF) (FSE: IA9) is pleased to announce that it has signed its first U.S. Area Representative Agreement for the development of 20 locations in Washington State over the next 8 years (the “Agreement”).

The Agreement was signed with 5th Group Holdings Ltd., a commercial construction and franchise development company based out of British Columbia.

The Agreement marks a significant milestone for Odd Burger as it seeks to gain a foothold in the U.S. market and expand its presence outside of Canada. “The U.S. market has always been our primary expansion target and we are now ready to open our first set of U.S. locations,” says James McInnes, CEO and co-founder of Odd Burger.  “The opportunity for Odd Burger is tremendous in the U.S., and we are fortunate to work with the talented team at 5th Group Holdings Ltd.”

5th Group Holdings Ltd. is led by Luke CeraldiJohn Bowker and Clayton Gunner, a team with nearly 10 years of commercial construction experience in the U.S.  Ceraldi and Bowker are also developing 2 Odd Burger sites in Victoria, British Columbia with their first location at 790 Fisgard Street set to open this fall.

“We are excited to be the first U.S. Area Representatives and to lead Odd Burger’s expansion into this key market,” says Ceraldi, President of 5th Group Holdings Ltd. “We see huge potential for the brand and can’t wait for U.S. customers to finally get a chance to enjoy all of the amazing food and customer experiences that Odd Burger has to offer.”

In the U.S., Odd Burger is growing exclusively through a territory development strategy whereby the Company sells the franchise development rights of each State to Area Representatives who know the local market and can assist with growth in those regions.  Area Representatives secure franchise partners and assist with site selection, construction, and ongoing operational support for franchisees. In exchange for developing the territory, Area Representatives get a percentage of the franchise fee, development fees, and recurring royalties on operational locations in their territory.

The Company is currently seeking territory developers in the following U.S. states: AlabamaAlaskaArizonaArkansasColoradoDelawareDistrict of Columbia, Florida, IdahoIowaKansasMassachusettsMississippiMissouriMontanaNevadaNew HampshireNew JerseyNew MexicoOhioOklahomaOregonPennsylvaniaTennesseeUtahVermontWest Virginia, and Wyoming.

I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily.
