Back in November, world-saving food crusader Jamie Oliver confirmed at a Los Angeles fundraiser that he'll be opening a restaurant there "in the next few years." But now comes word that the expansion is going to be a bit bigger than the one restaurant.

The Telegraph reports that Oliver's Jamie's Italian concept has plans to "open a small number of sites in the US and Canada," as evidenced by the formation of a new company named Jamie’s Italian North America. There don't seem to be any concrete plans just yet, but any North American locations would join the 24 Jamie's Italian spots the celebrity chef has scattered across the UK.
