Mon 10th Apr 2017 - Tim Hortons to open first UK site in Glasgow, plans extensive UK roll-out over next 12 months
Tim Hortons to open first UK site in Glasgow, plans extensive UK roll-out over next 12 months: Tim Hortons, the Canadian cafe and bake shop owned by Restaurant Brands is to open its first UK site, in Glasgow. The brand, which is making its European debut, is opening in Argyle Street later this spring. Responsible for bringing Tim Hortons to Britain is SK Group, an experienced franchise operator that has already played a major role in the successful UK expansion of Domino’s Pizza. Tim Hortons said it has extensive plans for roll-out across Great Britain over the next 12 months. Across Britain, Tim Hortons will offer an extensive menu of drinks, which include Tim Hortons signature coffee, espresso-based beverages, hot chocolate, French vanilla and classic frozen Iced Capp, as well as baked goods, breakfast and lunch. Guests can also look forward to the coffee shops’ signature Timbits bite-sized doughnuts that come in a variety of flavours. Tim Hortons’ UK and Ireland chief operating officer Gurprit Dhaliwal said: “We’ve witnessed Tim Hortons phenomenal success in Canada, and wanted to replicate this in Great Britain. It’s hard to explain just how important Tim Hortons is to Canadians – it’s not just a restaurant, it’s a way of life and a place of ‘home’, and we’re positive Great Britain will fall in love with the brand.” Tim Hortons president Elías Díaz Sesé added: “Bringing Tim Hortons to Great Britain and Glasgow is something we’re really excited about. Great Britain is a nation of coffee lovers, so we’re confident Tim Hortons will continue to be a leader in the quick-service restaurant sector across the pond.” Tim Hortons was founded by its namesake, a famous professional ice hockey player who wanted to create a space where “everyone would feel at home”. Eight out of ten cups of coffee sold across Canada are served at Tim Hortons and more than 5.3 million Canadians – approximately 15% of the population – visit the cafe daily. Restaurant Brands International is one of the world’s largest quick-service restaurant companies with more than $27bn in system sales and more than 23,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries and US territories.
