Canadian coffee giants moving in
Canadian coffee giant Tim Hortons announced plans to open up a store in Hamilton International Park. The firm said it will create 30 new jobs.
It follows the success of its first UK store in Glasgow’s Argyle Street at the start of the year.
Kevin Hydes, chief finance and commercial officer of the Tim Hortons franchise in Britain, said: “We’re excited to be opening in Hamilton International Park.
“We knew Great Britain loved its great coffee and delicious, freshly-made food, but the excitement we’ve seen for Tim Hortons following the first opening on Glasgow’s Argyle Street has beaten all of our expectations.
“We want to invite everyone to come down as soon as we’re open and experience our signature coffee and iconic baked goods and products.”
Founded in Hamilton, Canada, in 1964, Tim Hortons now has more than 4600 restaurants in North America.
Eight out of 10 cups of coffee sold across Canada are served at Tim Hortons and more than 5.3 million Canadians, approximately 15 per cent of the population, visit the cafes daily. Motorists were facing a full weekend of roadworks this weekend at the Raith roundabout – but they were called off yesterday (Wednesday).
Signs advertising the roadworks appeared this week – however Traffic Scotland have now postponed the work.
No new been set.
The outside lane on the roundabout had been scheduled to close for finishing works.
