Determination. Sweat. Love and Pride. This are a few of the characteristics it takes to be part of Tim Hortons annual “Tim Cup Challenge.”
This spectacle started weeks ago with over 4,000 Tim Hortons employees vying for a shot at the cup — some call this the Tim Hortons Olympics — and only 5 teams spread across Canada and the United States took part. The event was held at the Ottawa Convention Centre in front of Tim Hortons execs and franchise owners. Teams took simulated customer orders and were rated based on speed, skill, friendliness, and accuracy.
The five finalist teams were:
- “Harleay” from Regina, Saskatchewan
- “Les Gui-Gui” from Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec
- “Pat-Nots” from St. John’s, Newfoundland
- “Hospitality Divas” from Springfield, Ohio
- “Steeped Team” from Leamington, Ontario
In the end it was team “Pat-Nots” from St. John’s, Newfoundland that became victorious and captured a grand prize of $6,000 each and claimed the title of being the “top restaurant” in this years Tim Cup Challenge.
