City centre site is first of planned 15-20 stores in the region and as brand presses ahead with ‘rapid expansion’ in the UK
The Canadian coffee shop chain will open in Belfast’s Fountain Street on May 25th
, the company has revealed.
Since opening its first store UK in Glasgow, in June 2017 with SK Group, Tim Hortons has expanded to 17 sites in the UK across Manchester, Warrington, Bury and Cardiff.
Chief Finance and Commercial Officer, Kevin Hydes, who joined the company from Costa Coffee
in July last year, said the Belfast opening was part of the coffee chain’s plans to open 15-20 stores in the region.
“We are thrilled to be bringing our famous brewed coffee, baked goods and freshly prepared food to the people of Belfast. Following the success of our recent restaurant openings in Scotland, Wales and in England, we can’t wait to bring a taste of Canada to Northern Ireland at our new restaurant and welcome new guests to Tim Hortons,” he said.
Last year the multi-national coffee chain announced last year it would embark on a period of ‘rapid expansion’ in the UK by opening up to 100 sites.
In December 2017, the competitively-priced coffee and food-to-go chain opened two stores in Madrid, Spain and made its Mexican debut in January 2018.
