Tim Hortons to launch new franchise model in the UK
Tim Hortons is to launch a new franchise model in the UK as it looks to expand its portfolio of 75 outlets across the country.
Having launched in the UK in 2017, the cult Canadian coffee shop brand said the new model follows five years of a test and learn phase, which has created an operating model and infrastructure to support new franchise partners. Franchisees will be able to develop and open both Tim Hortons drive-thru and high street restaurants.
Famous for its freshly brewed coffee, donuts and Timbits, Tim Hortons currently has over 1,500 franchisees in Canada and rapidly growing businesses in China, India, the United Arab Emirates and Mexico.
Kevin Hydes, chief commercial officer of Tim Hortons franchise in the UK, said: “The reception to Tim Hortons® here in the UK has been nothing short of extraordinary. The brand has only grown in demand thanks to the support of loyal fans and excited newcomers ever since we opened our first restaurant in Glasgow back in 2017.
“Serving our guests, the highest quality, range of beverages, donuts and made-to-order food that suits all parts has been our main priority, and now we also want to take Tim Hortons® to more local communities across the nation at pace. We’re confident that our franchise model will be core to us achieving this goal.”
Founded as a single location in Canada in 1964, Tim Hortons now has more than 4,700 system wide restaurants in Canada, the US, and around the world.
