Tim Horton’s has announced a multi-year plan to expand and modernize its Canadian distribution network as part of a long-term commitment to support restaurant owners and improve the guest experience in restaurants.
The plan includes the construction of two new warehouse facilities — one in Alberta and one in British Columbia — and the significant expansion of an existing warehouse in Debert, N.S.
The investment will improve the distribution network and help streamline overall restaurant operations. The project is expected to create 150 new jobs once completed and is anticipated to cost about $100 million.
“We have an exciting agenda of new menu items, renovated restaurants and new advertising programs at Tim Hortons,” said Alex Macedo in an announcement earlier this month, noting the investment reflects the company’s long-term commitment to building the brand in Canada.
The new warehouse in British Columbia will service the entire province, while the new warehouse in Alberta will handle deliveries in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The Debert warehouse will continue to act as the hub for restaurants in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
Restaurants in Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador and parts of Quebec will continue to be served by third-party distribution partners.
