TORONTO — Anyone walking past Toronto’s bustling Yonge-Dundas Square today can visit a replica of Tim Hortons’ vintage restaurant.
The chain has announced it will launch its pop-up shop to honour its 50th anniversary. “Since our first restaurant opened its doors May 17, 1964, Tim Hortons has become an essential part of Canadians’ lives,” said Marc Caira, president and CEO, Tim Hortons. “We are thanking our loyal guests for making Tim Hortons Canada’s favourite coffee by taking them back in time to the very beginning and recreating our first restaurant.”
Staff will don ’60s uniforms and serve complimentary coffee and doughnuts as Canadian jazz-pop singer Nikki Yanofsky performs Motown music for the crowd.
Meanwhile, the chain has announced its vintage éclair has won the #TimsBringItBack contest; it will return to stores this year.
