Tim Hortons officials say they will open a store at the Kandahar military airfield in Afghanistan within the next few months ... 'I know I speak for all the men and women of the Canadian Forces when I say that I'm delighted to hear this news,' Gen. Hillier said ... "

It really is a Canadian institution now isn't it?

It's about time! Imagine the Canadian troops seeing the US servicemen going to BK, Pizza hut etc and our Canadian soldiers not being able to enjoy a good cup of timmies! Finally the travesty is over! I'm glad they saw sence and i think whoever got Tim Hortons to agree to set up shop over there deserves a huge thank you.

Well done timmies and well done Canadian Forces

Cheers

Once again it proves my theory that the Canadians are trying to take over the entire world. It's all part of a conspiracy, I tell you.

In my experience in hotspots this kind of thing is a bad idea. Westerners tend to congregate at western themed places. These then become targets. That said go Timmies, maybe our military will win some decent vehicle during role up the rim promos!

Wish they'd open up in the L.A. area. I either have to order via eBay (and pay up but wazzoo in shipping charges) or wait until someone from the midwest comes out to visit.

Quoting EmiratesA345 (Reply 10):

I count at least 22 on the Tim Hortons site and my girlfriend (a banker) read that there were 33 locations. From the Cambridge site "a great place to call home - Cambridge's 2006 population is estimated at 122,000". Also, according to the city limit signs, I have seen estimates as high as 130,000.

Ladies!
Cambridge is made up of Galt, Hespeler and Preston. Perhaps you were each looking at different statistcs. Perhaps one of your stats included the Greater Cambridge Area "the GCA" if you will. One of your statistics might also include the mini-stores or trolleys inside an Esso station or in another store.

The point is that there is enough to go around to make everyone happy.

Stop fighting.

Hope the security at the Kandahar location is good around the premises, otherwise they may end up with Tim Bits all over the place  smile

Within 10 miles of me there are 5 Tim Hortons. They're growing quick here in Rochester, NY.

It took the fun out of driving through Ontario on the way to Michigan and getting a box of timbits...

oh well, still tradition.

I wish they'd open some down here in Central Fla.

BTW, is the chain named after the defenseman
who played for both the Leafs and Sabres and
was killed in an auto accident? I remember his
Jersey was number 7.

Rumour has it ... the IS one in London. They're test marketing the location currently.

Your dreams will come true too Traindriver. Tim Horton's original plan was to open stores along routes that "snowbirds" from Toronto and Montreal travelled to get to their winter places in Florida.

In fact, many franchise hopefuls are actually moving to the USA to open stores, as it is becoming almost impossible to get into Tim Horton's as a new franshisee in Canada.
