Canada’s Worst Kept Secret: Say Hello To Tim Hortons

It came to my attention during my visit to Calgary that there was one fast food chain that you just couldn’t get away from. Like Starbucks in New York, there was one on every corner. It was always busy, whatever time of day you went at… Whether you queued in the Drive Thru or inside, or even in the airport, the queue was always long. Too long to bother with, in my opinion.

Two words: Tim Hortons.

Founded in 1967 and named after Tim Horton – a famous Canadian hockey player – it has slowly become Canada’s most popular fast food chain with now over 3000 stores nationwide. Like American chains Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme, it is known for its coffee and doughnuts.

Unfortunately I never got to sample Tim Hortons while I was there so I can’t comment on whether a Tim Hortons doughnut would be worth the half an hour to an hour wait.

However, I have been getting on the Krispy Kreme hype. #sorrynotsorry
