Under Construction: Copper Branch

Mainebiz has published an update on the Copper Branch vegan restaurant under development in Canal Plaza.

Chris and Melissa Hooper, husband-and-wife entrepreneurs who will become the building’s first tenants after signing a lease, told Mainebiz they’re targeting a September opening — possibly sooner — for the business.

Originally from Canada and now living in Cape Elizabeth, the couple will be franchisees for Copper Branch, a fast-growing Montreal-based chain that specializes in “100% plant-based power food” from avocado toast and other all-day breakfast fare to power smoothies and poutine with cremini mushroom sauce, a vegan take on a Quebec classic.

  1. Yay-Copperbranch is coming to Portland! Like the franchisees, I also live in Cape Elizabeth but grew up in (Montreal) Canada. When visiting Montreal with my vegan son, we often eat at Copperbranch! Even though I am not vegan, there are many delicious choices. I hope that other non-vegans will give Copperbranch a try. Montreal seems well ahead of a lot of places in terms of embracing veganism so I think the key to its success here will be for people to just give it a try because the food is delicious. The healthy benefits to your body and the planet are “gravy.”
