Tim Hortons to start ‘counting up the last 50 years of Tims history’

First it was the cup. Then several posters started make an appearance at various locations. Now, on Twitter, Tim Hortons has informed the addicted that the celebrations of their 50th anniversary is underway. The Canadian icon noted, “To celebrate our 50th Anniversary, we’ll be counting up the last 50 years of Tims history. Stay tuned!” Oh, we will!

The first Tim Hortons donut shop was set up in Hamilton, Ontario in 1964 with only two menu items — coffee and donuts (Apple Fritter and the Dutchie). The company later expanded locations and items and now have over 3,000 restaurants across Canada, over 600 locations in the United States and several locations in the United Arab Emirates.

Check out this video of the first location on the corner of Ottawa Street at Dunsmure in Hamilton — it used to be an old garage before Tim Horton and Ron Joyce converted it to heaven on earth.

I'm obsessed with Tim Hortons. It runs through my veins and I've probably spent enough money downing Steeped Tea's that I could have purchased my own franchise.
