Iconic Canadian coffee chain to open first UK drive thru in Salford


Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons is opening its first UK drive thru in Salford.

The restaurant, at 282 – 286 Bury New Road, will also be the first Tim Hortons in England, and the first of several openings in the Manchester area over the next few weeks.

Tim Hortons will offer an extensive and varied menu of delicious drinks, which include Tim Hortons signature freshly brewed coffee, espresso-based beverages, hot chocolate, French Vanilla and classic frozen Iced Capp drink, as well as baked goods, breakfast and lunch items made from quality ingredients.

Guests can also look forward to Tim Hortons signature Timbits, bite-sized doughnuts which come in a variety of flavours.

The first Tim Hortons restaurant in the UK opened in Glasgow in June with customers queuing overnight to be the first to sample the brand’s popular coffee and baked goods.

Tim Hortons was founded by its namesake, a top professional ice hockey player who wanted to create a space where everyone would feel at home.

It’s now one of Canada’s most iconic brands, with nearly eight out of 10 cups of coffee sold across Canada served at Tim Hortons. More than 5.3 million Canadians – approximately 15 per cent of the population – visit a café daily.


“The Tim Hortons Drive Thru is a major part of Canadian culture, and we think the UK is going to love our great tasting coffee and quality food, served quickly and with a smile,” said Kevin Hydes of the Tim Hortons UK franchise.

“The buzz around our recent Glasgow and Cardiff openings was phenomenal, and we couldn’t be more excited to open our first drive thru, and our first restaurant in England.”

The opening date will be announced shortly.
