Tim Hortons Invades NYC!

Tim Hortons Invades NYC!

My time in New York City is about to feel a little more like home: The Globe and Mail is reporting that this weekend, twelve Dunkin Donuts locations were converted to Tim Hortons – Canada’s iconic and widespread coffee & donut shop (my hometown of 19,000 people has 7 locations alone).

The opening received extensive coverage in the city’s papers last week. The New York Times explained who Tim Horton was and quoted a food industry analyst who called the organization “the number one coffee chain in Canada.” The Daily News explained what a “double double” is, and The New York Post said some people hold Tim Hortons “partly responsible for overburdening [Canada’s] socialized medical system.”

Watch out New York.
