Tim Hortons Business Model

The Tim Hortons business model is time-tested and different from that of most quick service restaurant companies. This model has helped create a 50-year history of growth and strong performance.

The Tim Hortons business model includes significant levels of real estate control and vertical integration, supporting our highly franchised business. We believe that each aspect of our model contributes to our success and creates system advantages, while also generating system benefits and value for our Restaurant Owners.

Our Restaurant Owners are the heart of our system. We believe the quality, commitment and engagement of our Restaurant Owners set us apart from other corporate and franchised systems. Virtually all of our system is franchised (more than 99%) except for a very small number of corporately-run restaurants used primarily for training purposes. We work collaboratively with our Restaurant Owners to collectively grow our system, and we work hard to foster positive relationships and mutual success.

Our Value Chain

In 2014, we operated five distribution centers located across Canada (Langley, BC; Calgary, AB; Guelph, ON; Kingston, ON; Debert, NS) that supply various combinations of dry, frozen and refrigerated products to our restaurants. In the U.S., we supply similar products to our restaurants through third-party distributors. Our operations also include coffee-roasting plants in Rochester, NY and Hamilton, ON, as well as a fondant and fills manufacturing facility in Oakville, ON.
