OAKVILLE, Ont. — Restaurant Brands International has established a master franchise joint venture with a U.K. investor to bring the Tim Hortons brand to England, Scotland and Wales. The joint-venture company and its CEO, Gurprit Dhaliwal, will be responsible for developing and growing the brand in the new market.
“This deal is part of our growth plan to take the iconic Tim Hortons brand around the world,” says Daniel Schwartz, CEO of Restaurant Brands International. “Great Britain is an attractive QSR market with a strong and growing coffee culture so it is a natural fit for the brand.”
This announcement comes just one month after RBI shared plans to enter the Philippines. The brand currently has an active presence in Canada, the U.S. and the Middle East.
“We are thrilled to introduce the iconic Tim Hortons brand and Canada’s favourite coffee to Great Britain,” Gurprit says. “Our Guests in England, Scotland and Wales are sure to be delighted with our focus on delivering great products and an exceptional guest experience.”
