Tim Hortons set for UK rollout

With its first site in a UK shopping centre set to open at Silverburn, Glasgow, Tim Hortons will be opening in Manchester, Cardiff and Belfast over the coming months.

The Canadian coffee shop group opened its first UK outlet on Argyle Street in Glasgow at the start of June.

The new coffee shops will offer an extensive and varied menu of drinks including the signature coffee, espresso-based beverages, hot chocolate, French Vanilla and classic frozen Iced Capp drink.

Baked goods are available for breakfast and lunch and there are also the infamous Timbits on offer, bite-sized doughnuts which come in a variety of flavours.

Kevin Hydes, CFO of the Tim Hortons UK franchise, said, “We were blown away by the reception we received in Glasgow, and are delighted to announce the opening of restaurants in Cardiff, Belfast and Manchester.”

As one of Canada’s most iconic brands, nearly eight out of 10 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.
