Thousands of random guests at Tims Hortons restaurants across Canada to
be surprised with free orders from December 18 to December 22.
OAKVILLE, ON, Dec. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - The best gifts are the ones you get
when you least expect them. So, Tim Hortons wants to help make "the
most wonderful time of the year" even merrier with Random Cups of
Kindness. Beginning today, through to Saturday, December 22, thousands
of randomly selected guests at more than 3,000 participating
restaurants across the country will receive their order for free.
"At Tim Hortons we have the honour of serving millions of guests each
and every day," says 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 randomly surprise many of our
loyal guests with a free order."
When the randomly selected guests are served, they will be handed a red
bracelet as a memento. They are also being encouraged to share their
experiences on Twitter using the hashtag, #randomcupsofkindness, or to
post their experiences and photos on the Tim Hortons Facebook page (www.facebook.com/TimHortons).
"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," says Clanachan. "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, 100 Canadians
who mention Tim Hortons in their Tweets will be randomly selected and
surprised with a Tim card.
The Tim Hortons Random Cups of Kindness program is also being carried
out across more than 300 participating U.S. restaurant locations.
