TORONTO — Tim Hortons has suspended shipment of a range of items to franchisees from one of its Ontario-based warehouses, reports the Calgary Herald. The publication also notes that the company has suggested franchisees try to source the affected items — a total 45 products — from Walmart until the problem is resolved.
The “temporarily unavailable” items include take-home formats of Tim Hortons-brand coffee, bottled beverages, garbage bags and kitchen gloves.
The distribution facility in question is located in Guelph, Ont. Earlier this week, Tim Hortons indicated that it expects the issue to be resolved by the end of the week.
