Tim Hortons All started in a small shop located in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in 1964 and now nearly 53 years later there are over 4000 Tim Horton Locations across Canada, USA and a few other Countries. Tim Hortons Symbolises Canada as it is a Canadian brand and is the number 1 Coffee store In Canada even competing with Starbucks from the USA. Without Tim Hortons we wouldn't be able to grab a quick coffee on the go here in Canada. Tim Hortons is special to Canada as it was created and named after the Famous Toronto Maple Leaf player Tim Horton who was also Canadian. Also Tim Hortons is basically everywhere in Canada so it isn't hard to find a Tim Hortons store to grab a fresh and hot coffee once in a while.
I like to drink coffee once in a while and Tim Hortons makes it easy for everyone to grab a quick fresh coffee on the go instead of having to make it yourself which is why Tim Hortons is a big part of all coffee lovers life's and even people who like a good coffee to wake them up once in a while.
