Tim Hortons eyes China and India as part of world domination scheme
Tim Hortons is planning to expand its legacy (and its conspicuously poor grammar) to the rest of the world within the next four years. While the chain has a tenuous foothold in some parts of the U.S.—including 12 locations in New York City—Timmies execs will pitch an international growth strategy to the board of directors next month. The symbol of all that is Canadian also wants to break out of breakfast and snacks to boost sales at other times of the day.
“It’s easy to say ‘I should be in China, I should be in India, lots of people there,’ but if you look at the landscape, it’s littered with people who jumped in too quickly. So we’re going to do it in a business-like manner, do the evaluations and then make the appropriate decisions wherever that might be,” said [Tim Hortons CEO Don Schroeder].
One retail analyst told the Canadian Press that cultural differences in consumption habits overseas could be difficult to overcome. We can’t wait to see the weird fast food options that come out as Timmies tries to go multicultural. Double-double masala chai, anyone?

Stop the world, I want to get off.
the world is not a ride, you should have realized that by now.
Uh oh, sounds like someone didn’t get thier Timmy’s fix this morning.
Tim Hortins no gut get into China and India. KFC already has 2,000 stores in China, MacDonld’s has 1,300 stores in China. American businessmen have gut and Canadian business have no gut, am I right ?
I don’t know Peter as I can’t understand a damn thing you said.
Go ahead , lets have the rest of the world drink sh^*%y too!
Tim Hortons is no longer Canadian owned – it is American owned. The American mentality is to supersize every type of food and drink. It doesn’t have to be that way. No one needs a supersize cup of coffee; have a small, burn off the calories and if you must, have another small cup a few hours later. One part of the world is suffering and dying from hunger and the other part of the world is suffering and dying from over eating due to gluttony! To me, it’s a sign of greed. There is a lot of $$$cash$$$ to be made marketing to 7 billion people.
I’m with mattagascar on this one.
