Hamilton Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
