Following the launch of the UK’s first branch of the Canadian restaurant in Glasgow at the start of June, the latest openings represent the second phase of a nationwide rollout plan. Locations in Manchester, Cardiff and Belfast have been confirmed for the brand, which already has more than 4,600 restaurants worldwide.
The menus at the new sites will be extensive, as they are in the original Canadian branches. There will be signature coffee drinks; espresso based drinks; hot chocolate; and French Vanilla and classic frozen ‘Ice Capp’ drinks.
Food items will include breakfast muffins, porridges, classic sandwiches, wraps, soups, grilled cheeses, and baked goods, including the brand’s signature ‘Timbits’ (bite-sized doughnuts in a variety of flavours).
Opening dates for the new locations have not yet been released, but progress seems to be well on the way as recruitment is ongoing for a number of managerial job roles.
“We were blown away by the reception we received in Glasgow, and we can’t wait to share more details,” says Kevin Hydes, the brand’s chief finance and commercial officer in the UK.
Hockey player Tim Horton founded the eponymous chain in 1964, and the company now operates 4,700 sites in Canada, the United States and the Middle East. The group merged with Burger King to form Restaurant Brands International in 2014
