TORONTO — This spring, Restaurant Brands International (RBI) — the parent company of Tim Hortons and Burger King — is launching an app Canada-wide that would allow customers to order and pay in advance on their smartphone.
In 2015, RBI acquired Brewster App and began to develop the app. “The first feature we’re going to be introducing is … the ability for a customer to have Tim Hortons (and Burger King) in their pocket,” says Steve Greenwood, RBI’s head of Digital.
Since late December, the app has undergone testing in 25 Tim Hortons’ cafes in Ontario and 25 Burger King restaurants in Miami. The expansion would see the app rolled out to approximately 4,000 Tim Hortons and Burger King locations across Canada.
