In 1964, the first Tim Hortons® restaurant in Hamilton, Ontario opened its doors and Canadians have been ordering Tim Hortons iconic Original Blend coffee, Double-Double ™ coffees, Donuts and Timbits® ever since. Over the years, Tim Hortons has captured the hearts and taste buds of Canadians. Tim Hortons is now proud to be Canada's largest restaurant chain serving over 5 million cups of coffee every day with 80% of Canadians visiting a Tims in Canada at least once a month. More than a coffee and bake shop, Tim Hortons is part of the fabric of Canada and a proud symbol of our country and its values.
We have always had a deep connection to our communities and our guests from coast to coast. Our more than 1,500 restaurant owners are Canadians who live in communities across the country employing over 100,000 people. Our local Owners and their teams care deeply about the communities they serve. That’s why we provide over $60 million per year to organizations and communities throughout Canada. From signature programs like Timbits® Sports and the Tim Hortons Foundation Camps, we invest in community projects and initiatives big and small.
In November 2023, Tim Hortons launched in Singapore, further amplifying its global presence in Asia. This adds to the ongoing success Tim Hortons has achieved worldwide.
This significant expansion signifies a brand-new chapter, delivering Tim Hortons' cherished Canadian spirit to a worldwide audience and paving the way for the swift opening of more stores in Singapore in the near future.
