Canadian coffee chain lines up new store

THERE could be a new Tim Hortons branch coming to Bishopbriggs.

Fans of the iconic Canadian brand will be able to enjoy the signature coffee and tasty doughnuts and Timbits at an outlet in Strathkelvin Retail Park.

Although the company is yet to confirm the new store, it is already on the hunt for staff, with a vacancy for a team member/baker advertised online.

The quick service restaurant is looking for someone with “fantastic customer service, thrive on customer satisfaction and have a healthy obsession with food and coffee”.

After initially setting up in Glasgow’s Argyle Street during the summer, the brand then announced in July that it was opening a second store in Silverburn shopping centre. The company has also applied to Glasgow City Council to open another outlet on Sauchiehall Street.

Tim Hortons was founded in 1964 by its namesake, a well-known professional ice hockey player, who wanted to create cafes where everyone would feel at home.

Since then the brand has grown to become an ingrained part of Canadian culture, with locations in nearly every Canadian small town and city.

Hundreds of people rushed to the opening of the Glasgow store. The first customer to enter was given free coffee for a full year, while the next 10 received 50 free Timbits – signature bite-sized doughnuts – every month for an entire year.
