23 Aug ICONIC CANADIAN RESTAURANT TIM HORTONS ANNOUNCES TWO NEW VENUES IN ESSEX
Iconic Canadian restaurant brand, Tim Hortons® is making a name for itself in Essex, announcing the arrival of not one, but two new drive-thru restaurants this winter. The brand famed for its signature coffee and delicious donuts will open in Thurrock, Essex, with a venue in Braintree hot on its heels – taking the total number of sites within the county to three following the successful launch of Harlow in May.
Located at Lakeside Retail Park and on the outskirts of the M25, the new venue in Thurrock will offer dine-in seating for up to 108 guests, an outside area for up to 16 people. The new site in Braintree will be located at Galleys Corner – spanning over 3,515 sq ft – and will offer dine-in seating for up to 104 guests.
Both sites will offer drive-thru services for those on-the-go, as well as delivery options that will be made available to those in the local area following each opening.
The new restaurants will create over 100 jobs for the local Essex community, 50 at both Thurrock and Braintree respectively. Each site will offer a combination of full-time and part-time roles, with impressive progression and training opportunities.
The two new launches follow a record-breaking opening week for the brand’s new restaurant in Harlow and forms part of its plan to create over 2,000 jobs across the country, bringing Tim Hortons restaurants to every major town and city by 2022.
Customers can expect Canada’s favourite coffee*, freshly baked donuts and Timbits® around the clock, as well as delicious breakfast, lunch and evening meal options, including hot sandwiches and wraps. Known for its impressive opening giveaways, locals and avid fans in Essex are encouraged to keep their eyes peeled and follow Tim Hortons® on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more news.
Kevin Hydes, Chief Commercial Officer of Tim Hortons® franchise in the U.K commented:
“Following an incredibly successful launch in Harlow, we are thrilled to announce a further two openings in Essex later this year – taking our total number of restaurants to three within the county. Our openings in Thurrock and Braintree will not only allow us to bring our Canadian charm to the fantastic local community but also to those in East London and the surrounding areas. This marks a huge step in bringing our brand closer to home for many of our fans.”
“This is an incredibly exciting time for the brand as we continue this period of exponential growth and we’ll be searching for local talent to join us on our journey. Our three openings in Essex are providing over 150 job opportunities across the county and we are extremely proud of the training and progression opportunities we offer. We look forward to recruiting for a variety of exciting part-time and full-time roles and will be accepting applications immediately via our website.”
