Canadian Coffee Shop Tim Hortons To Open First Store In The UK

The iconic Canadian coffee shop Tim Hortons will open its first store in Glasgow in May 2017.

As reported by CBC, customers in the UK will enjoy classics like the “Double-Double” (a coffee with double cream and double sugar), as well as muffins, doughnuts, and “timbits” – bite-sized doughnuts.

After Glasgow, the chain plans a “12-month rapid expansion into other major regional cities” across the UK.

On social media and in London’s tabloids, some have slammed the company ahead of its debut in Glasgow, Scotland. “Welcome to the world of weak coffee!” screamed a headline in the Daily Mail.

“I don’t know that we’re going to get to eight out of 10 cups any time soon, but we have big, big ambitions,” said Daniel Schwartz, CEO of Restaurant Brands International (TSX:QSR). Tim Hortons says it pours 80 per cent of the cups of coffee sold in Canada.

8 out of 10 cups of coffee sold in the country are sold at Tim Hortons, according to the company.
