Tim Hortons to open first restaurant in Manchester city centre

The new Manchester Arndale branch of the Canadian chain will seat up to 100 guests and will also provide a takeaway service

Canadian restaurant brand, Tim Hortons, has today announced that due to popular demand it will open its first restaurant in Manchester city centre.

Located at Manchester Arndale, the brand will create another 50 jobs for the local community, on top of the 200 it has already generated since its inception in the area four years ago.

The restaurant will seat up to 100 guests, offering a comfortable spot for those looking for a rest whilst shopping, or to catch up with friends.

The venue will also provide a takeaway service for those on the go and delivery options will be made available to those in the local area following the launch. 

Well-known already by many in Manchester, customers can expect Canada’s favourite coffee, freshly baked donuts and Timbits, as well as delicious breakfast, lunch and evening meal options, including hot sandwiches and wraps.

Offering a wide menu throughout the day, the restaurant will also cater for those observing an halal or vegetarian diet.

“We have searched for the perfect city centre location to support our four existing restaurants in Greater Manchester for a long time now and finally have a location we’re incredibly excited about,” said Kevin Hydes, Chief Commercial Officer of Tim Hortons franchise in the U.K. 

“Manchester was one of the first cities to take us under its wing when we moved across the pond and the fans in the community have fast become some of our biggest advocates.

“It’s a vibrant city, full of foodies and so we’re pleased to be making our affordable prices and wide menu choices accessible to even more people in the heart of the city.

“We are proud to be recruiting over 50 full and part time roles and we welcome all those passionate about a career in hospitality.

“We will be accepting applications from today via our website and look forward to connecting with our friends in Manchester.”

Fans in Manchester are encouraged to keep their eyes peeled and follow the Tim Hortons Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages for more news about the new opening.
