Franchise Information

Founded in 1964 as a coffee and donut shop, Tim Hortons has grown into today’s “fast-casual with a drive-thru” format, which offers convenient, great-tasting food for breakfast, lunch and dinner – 24 hours a day at most locations. In addition to the original offering of coffee and donuts, our menu today consists of a delicious variety of lunch offerings, such as our new Southwest Chicken sandwich; soups, including our new Hearty Vegetable; a wide assortment of baked goods; and our newest beverage, the Hot Smoothee, a smooth and frothy drink available in a variety of flavors.

Maidstone Bakery
The 2003 opening of Maidstone Bakery, a world-class, 300,000-square-foot par-baking facility in Brantford, Ontario, began a key shift in our business, allowing our restaurants to produce fresh baked goods in just a few minutes. The bakery is a 50/50 joint venture formed in 2001 with Cuisine de France,® a subsidiary of IAWS Group plc. For more information about IAWS Group and Cuisine de France, see www.iaws.ie.

Maidstone Coffee
Our Rochester, New York-based coffee roasting facility, which we purchased in 2001, is part of our vertical integration strategy to ensure quality products. The plant roasts coffee for about one-third of the Tim Hortons system, with the balance provided by third-party roasters that meet our stringent quality requirements.
