History of Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons, founded in 1964 by hockey player Tim Horton and Jim Charade, began as a humble coffee and donut shop in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The brand rapidly expanded, becoming a beloved Canadian institution known for its iconic double-double coffee and Timbits. In 1995, the company merged with Wendy's International, leading to further growth across North America. Tim Hortons eventually split from Wendy's in 2006 and was acquired by Restaurant Brands International in 2014. Today, Tim Hortons continues to serve as a cultural touchstone in Canada, with locations across the globe, offering a diverse menu beyond its classic offerings.
