Canada-based coffee chain Tim Hortons has revealed plans to open its first UK Drive Thru on Bury New Road, Manchester, which will be the company’s first restaurant in England.

The new restaurant is the first of the chain’s several planned openings in Manchester, a move which is expected to bring more job opportunities to the area.

The outlet, which will open within the next month, will also feature a training academy to help train staff. The company did not disclose the details of its several openings in the Manchester area.

In the beginning of June this year, Tim Hortons opened its first restaurant in the UK on Argyle Street in Glasgow, Scotland.

In the UK, the restaurant chain will offer a range of drinks, including signature freshly brewed coffee, espresso-based beverages, hot chocolate, French Vanilla and classic frozen Iced Capp drink, as well as baked goods, breakfast and lunch items.

Tim Hortons franchise in the UK chief finance and commercial officer Kevin Hydes said: “The Tim Hortons Drive Thru is a major part of Canadian culture, and we think the UK is going to love our great tasting coffee and quality food, served quickly and with a smile.

“The buzz around our recent Glasgow and Cardiff openings was phenomenal, and we couldn’t be more excited to open our first Drive Thru, and our first restaurant in England.”

In Glasgow, Tim Hortons is set to open another shop in Strathkelvin Retail Park in Bishopbriggs. It will be the third restaurant in Scotland and the fourth in the UK.


Being one of North America’s largest fast food restaurant chains, Tim Hortons has more than 4,600 restaurants in Canada, the US and around the world.
