The 50-year-old coffee-and-doughnut chain is Bangkok-bound.
Tim Hortons, Canada's largest coffee-and-doughnut chain, is set to make its debut in Thailand in the near future, though dates and locations have yet to be confirmed.
According to a Tim Hortons statement on Thursday, as reported in various international sources (including Food Business News, Yahoo Finance and City News 1130), the coffee-and-donut chain has reached an agreement with WeEat Co. to launch its first outlet in Thailand.
The fast food chain first opened in Hamilton, Ontario, in 1964, and currently has 4,846 restaurants worldwide. Tim Hortons is best known for its fresh-baked goods such as doughnuts, muffins and bagels, as well as coffee.
The statement says the Thailand outpost will retain the company's original recipes and also adapt parts of its menu to local tastes, as it did in China earlier this year. The menu there includes exclusive items like salted egg yolk Timbits (bite-sized fried-dough confectionery), so it's anyone's guess what we might be treated to in Bangkok.
