Tim Hortons® to open new Drive-Thru Restaurant in Perth, Scotland
Tim Hortons®, the iconic Canadian coffee chain, will open a new drive-thru restaurant on St Catherine’s Leisure Park.
The location will offer both a warm, welcoming and comfortable restaurant, as well as a drive thru lane for everyone to enjoy Canada’s favourite coffee*.
The new restaurant will create 40 jobs, a combination of full-time and part-time opportunities. The roles will be a mix of shift managers, who hold the teams together, motivate and lead by example, and team members who will make guests feel welcome and serve the famous coffee and donuts the brand is known for. The restaurant is seeking outgoing applicants who are warm, welcoming and caring to join the team ahead of the upcoming launch.
More details can be found on the Tim Hortons UK website here.
The Tim Hortons® brand was founded in 1964 by its namesake, a top professional ice hockey player, who wanted to create a space where everyone would feel at home. Fast forward to 2019 and nearly eight out of 10 cups* of coffee sold across Canada are served at Tim Hortons® restaurants and more than 5.3 million Canadians – approximately 15 percent of the population – visit the café daily.
As well as the famous Donuts, Timbits® and range of beverages, customers will have on offer hearty breakfast options, as well as a variety of meal items such as sandwiches, wraps, and toasted melts, all fresh and made-to-order using quality ingredients.
Kevin Hydes, Chief Commercial Officer at Tim Hortons® U.K. & Ireland said: "We're delighted to have secured a fantastic location in Perth for our new drive-thru restaurant. We have had an incredible reaction in Scotland for our brand and look forward to bringing this to more communities across the country with our latest opening”.
The first Tim Hortons® in the U.K. opened its doors in Glasgow in June 2017 to huge fanfare, with fans travelling from across the country and queuing overnight to sample the brand’s famed coffee and baked goods. As Tim Hortons® rolls out nationwide, a further 27 restaurants are now serving guests in and around Milton Keynes, Birmingham, Glasgow, Cardiff, Manchester, Leicester and Belfast with excitement levels showing no signs of dropping.
