Tim Hortons signs up first UK franchise partner
Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons has signed up its first franchisee in the UK and Ireland.
Graeme and Lisa Tobias will become the first partners to operate the brand in the UK and will open their first drive-thru outlet in Stenhousemuir in Scotland by the end of 2018. The couple is planning to open a cluster of sites across Scotland in the next 18 months.
Kevin Hydes, chief finance and commercial officer of the Tim Hortons franchise in the UK, said: “We have seen great demand from many businesses interested in becoming franchise partners and after a thorough selection process, we are delighted to welcome Graeme and Lisa Tobias and their team to the Tim Hortons family.”
Tim Hortons opened its first UK branch in Glasgow’s Argyle Street in June last year and now operates UK outlets in and around Glasgow, Cardiff, Belfast and Manchester. The company has over 4,700 restaurants in Canada and around the world.
