DUBLIN, OH, Dec. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Getting up and out the door early
enough to beat the morning rush can make it challenging to fit in
breakfast. In fact, 31 million Americans don't make time for their
morning meal1. Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop is helping Americans get their mornings
off to a smoother start with the new Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwich,
a satisfying and delicious breakfast option at 350 calories.
"We know that our guests have hectic morning schedules which is why we

better," said Mike Meilleur, executive vice president, Tim Hortons U.S.
"Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop is known for our great breakfast
sandwiches and now we have a lower calorie, lower fat option*--with the
same great taste."
Available at participating Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurants for

served hot and can be made with an egg-white omelet option at 290
calories, 10 grams of fat and 20 grams of protein. The sandwich also
