The Tim Hortons team say that coffee fans and local residents should keep an eye on the company’s social media as there is set to be more updates and special offers posted there ahead of their launch day.

The first Tim Hortons restaurant in the UK opened on Argyle Street at the start of June, and is already proving popular with Glasgow’s coffee fans.

Tim Hortons was founded by its namesake, a top professional ice hockey player, who wanted to create a space where everyone would feel at home.

Now one of Canada’s most iconic brands, nearly eight out of 10 cups of coffee sold across Canada are served at Tim Hortons and more than 5.3 million Canadians – approximately 15 per cent of the population – visit the café daily.

Kevin Hydes, Chief Finance and Commercial Officer of the Tim Hortons franchise in the UK said: “We’re thrilled to announce we’re opening in Silverburn Shopping Centre – it’s a fantastic area and shares similar values with Tim Hortons – a strong sense of community and friendly culture.

“We knew the UK loved its great coffee and delicious, freshly made food, but the excitement we’ve seen for Tim Hortons has beaten all of our expectations. We want to invite everyone to come down, as soon as we’re open, and experience our signature coffee and iconic baked goods and products for themselves.”
