Tim Hortons to open first southern drive-through

Tim Hortons has announced plans to open a drive-through restaurant in Milton Keynes in December. The move will mark its first site in the south, with many more planned to open in the next 12 months.

The 2700 sq. ft. site will offer a drive-through service, as well as space for 74 covers inside the premises. The opening will also create over 40 full- and part-time jobs for the Milton Keynes community.

Following successful regional launches in Glasgow, Belfast, Manchester and the Midlands, the opening will be part of the brand’s ongoing strategy to bring Tim Hortons to every major city and town over the next few years. As a key part of its ongoing growth strategy, the chain is seeking further sites across the UK and Ireland for drive-through restaurants.

Kevin Hydes, chief commercial officer of Tim Hortons UK and Ireland, said: “The arrival of our Tim Hortons brand in the south of England has been a key part of the business growth plan and we are excited to continue the journey with our opening in Milton Keynes. This launch is just the start of our planned expansion throughout the UK, with many more exciting openings in the pipeline for 2021.”
