Saskatchewan restaurant team finalists in chain-wide competition for
fastest, friendliest service
OAKVILLE, ON, Nov. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - One of Regina's 18 Tim Hortons
restaurants has been recognized as one of the best among the company's
nearly 100,000 employees in a chain-wide competition to identify the
fastest and friendliest teams who deliver the best customer service.
The company's Tim Cup Challenge pitted nearly 900 restaurants across
Canada and the United States against each other in an event that
measured their speed, order accuracy and friendliness. The team from
Regina, "Harleay", located at 4225 Albert Street, beat out 85 other
Western Canada restaurants to be recognized as hospitality champions in
their province and move on to the final competition.
"We know people have many restaurant options these days but we know our
amazing restaurant teams are an important part of why our guests come
back time and time again," said Sandra Sturgess, Director of
Hospitality, Tim Hortons. "We wanted to celebrate our teams in a fun
way so we created the national Tim Cup Challenge to recognize and
reward those team members who provide the best customer service."
The final national competition was held yesterday in Ottawa and while
another team took the top honour, the Regina finalists received $2,000
per team member and of course, bragging rights for being the fastest
and friendliest Tim Hortons in Saskatchewan and Western Canada.
