Tim Hortons celebrating its 50th birthday on May 17th by giving away a free Birthday Cake Donut!

Tim Hortons is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year — the exact date is May 17th — and the last few months we’ve seen a number of ways they are ringing in the big Five-0. Roll Up the Rim featured two way to win and included 50 cars, 50th anniversary merchandise, a Birthday Cake Timbit bit US stores, and most recently the Oakville-based company unveiled a selection of 5 discontinued menu items that could be brought back.

Another way that Timmies is celebrating this milestone is giving away free donuts! This sign popped up at Tim Hortons locations and reads “Celebrate with us! Free Birthday Cake Donut on May 17th.” That is nothing short of awesome. Looks like the Birthday Cake love is coming to Canadian soil and in a donut form… and free!

Marc Caira, President and CEO, Tim Hortons previously stated that “Anniversaries are a time to celebrate the best of the past while working towards the brightest future. Even as the 50th anniversary year begins to unfold, Tim Hortons is hard at work, innovating, working to create the ultimate guest experience and looking toward the next 50 years.”

Gotta love Timmies!

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.
