Tim Hortons History

The company was founded in Hamilton in 1964. by popular hockey player Tim Horton and his partner Jim Charade and it initially started as a burger place. By the time Tim Hortons has gained national popularity that it became an everyday essential, something like a Starbucks for USA citizens.

Surprising as it may seem, the beginning of this coffee business was small and humble. Tim and Jim had a lot of disagreements on the menu so in 1966. Jim left the company and Jim hired Ron Joyce, a person who is responsible for what we know as Hortons today.

In just a few years Hortons expanded all over Canada and became a multi-million dollars worth franchise. After Tim’s death, Ron took over the company and focused on making the coffee and donuts as an association with hockey.

In six decades of its existence, Horton’s introduced us to innovations like the double-double which is a coffee with two doses of cream and two sugars; Timbits which are small-bites donuts, and iced cap supreme (iced cappuccino).

By March 2022. Tim Hortons stores are located in 15 different countries with 4949 restaurants. Most of their restaurants are located in Canada and US, but you can find them in China, Spain, the United Kingdom, Qatar, UAE, Thailand, the Philippines, and more.
