Owning a Tim Hortons franchise can be an expensive undertaking. To grab your hands on one of these beauties you need around $800,000 and additional cash on hand to run the business on a daily basis. While the Oakville-based company has plans to open upwards of 500 new restaurants over the next 5-years, Holland, New York — population approximately 3,400 — is not on the list of places to receive a location.
Popular crowd funding site Indiegogo is here to help. Dreamer “Kyrsten TheMomma” has put together a project that hopes to bring Tim Hortons to the area and states that “In Holland NY there is almost nothing… Let’s give us a Tim Horton’s! Hot Coffee, a safe place to hang out and wi-fi, and fresh baked goods to bring to church Sunday morning! Help me make it HAPPEN!”
The campaign has raised no money so far, but has a goal are fetching the required $800,000. TheMomma notes that there is a railroad line and the raceway close by, which would bring people into the Timmies.
