OAKVILLE, ON, April 17, 2018 /CNW/ - TIM HORTONS® announced today that later this year the TIM HORTONS® head office and Global Restaurant Support Centre will be relocating to downtown Toronto. The new headquarters will be located in the Exchange Tower. The 65,000-square-foot space will feature a fresh, modern work environment that will foster collaboration and connectivity and serve as the new home for our TIM HORTONS® employees.
To us, this is more than just a new address. By moving our office and Global Restaurant Support Centre to Toronto, we are reinforcing our commitment to our Canadian roots and continuing to push forward as a leader in our industry.
"This major metropolitan environment will provide a platform for us to further expand our leadership in Canada by bringing us closer to our business partners and the people on the front lines of tomorrow's industry trends," said Alex Macedo, President of TIM HORTONS®. "This change is another part of our journey to build a stronger TIM HORTONS® and will enable us to harness the power of technology and innovation to better serve our Guests and Restaurant Owners for years to come."
TIM HORTONS® has been proud to call Oakville home for many years, so this decision was not one we have taken lightly. The town of Oakville has been incredibly supportive of us as we've grown over the last 50+ years and we will always be grateful. But, as we look at our bold plans for the future of TIM HORTONS®, downtown Toronto comes up as an ideal setting for us as we continue to evolve to meet the needs of our Guests.
It is our hope that all our current and future employees embrace this positive change and join us in this next exciting chapter."
Our focus on innovation labs, idea sharing and creativity will be core to our new space as will exciting new efforts such as our planned, exclusive speaker series. This commitment to training and investing in our employees will ensure we continue on our journey to build a stronger TIM HORTONS® for our Guests and Restaurant Owners.
