Random Guests at Tims Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop Restaurants across the
U.S. to be Surprised with Free Orders from December 18 to December 22
DUBLIN, OH, Dec. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - The best gifts are the ones you get
when you least expect it. So, Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop is making
"the most wonderful time of the year" even merrier with Random Cups of
Kindness. Beginning today through to Saturday, December 22, randomly
selected guests at more than 300 participating U.S. restaurants will
receive their order for free.
In addition to its Holiday Helpers Black Friday surprises, Tim Hortons
Cafe & Bake Shop team members will help spread some cheer and make
guests' holidays a little easier by paying for their orders at the
"At Tim Hortons we have the honor of serving millions of guests each and
every day," said David Clanachan, COO, Tim Hortons. "With the hustle
and bustle of the season upon us, we thought this would be the perfect
time to show our appreciation and surprise many of our loyal guests
with a free order."
Doing good at the drive-thru isn't a new concept to the restaurant
chain. Restaurant owners, managers and team members regularly witness
customers paying for a stranger's order—especially during the morning
rush when drive-thru lines can get particularly long.
"Our guests regularly connect with us in a variety of different
environments, whether online at home, in restaurants or on-the-go with
smart phones," Clanachan added. "They place orders, share experiences
and give us great feedback. We want to thank them all and share Random
Cups of Kindness with as many as we can."
With that in mind, the fun of Random Cups of Kindness is also being
extended online. Each day during the five-day campaign, U.S. Twitter
followers (@TimHortonsUS) who mention Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop in their tweets will be
randomly selected and surprised with a TimCard.
The Random Cups of Kindness program is also being carried out across
more than 2,900 participating Canadian restaurants.
Earlier this season, the Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop Holiday Helpers
partnered with Master Card® to surprise lucky shoppers by taking care
of their gift budgets. On Thanksgiving night, across most of the bakery
cafe chain's U.S. markets, restaurant owners randomly gave a person waiting in line for Black Friday deals $750 in Master Card® gift
Since 2011, Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop also randomly picks up its
guests' tabs in celebration of National Random Acts of Kindness Week in
