Tim Hortons slated to make India debut, eyes 300-plus stores in ten years

The coffee brand currently has over 5,100 restaurants across 13 countries.

Tim Hortons is set to make its debut in India later this year as part of an exclusive agreement with a joint venture entity owned by Apparel Group and Gateway Partners.

The first restaurant is set to open in New Delhi, part of plans to launch over 300 locations across the country over the next ten years.

Once launched, India will become the fourth country in the Asia Pacific region for Tim Hortons, including a presence in China where there are over 400 restaurants.

Tim Hortons is also present in the United States, Mexico, Spain, the United Kingdom, across the Middle East, Thailand and the Philippines.

“India is one of the world's fastest growing markets for coffee and tea retail chains and Tims is thrilled to be opening there soon,” David Shear, President of RBI International, the parent company of Tim Hortons, said in an announcement.

“We’re committed to serving India the premium quality coffee and delicious foods that Tims fans in Canada and around the world love,” Shear added. “This launch in India is another critical step in our continuing international expansion plans.”
