The enthusiasm of Tim Hortons celebrating its big 50th birthday last week has now settled down. The company honoured this milestone with balloons, a replica of its first location, and the Birthday Cake donut. You can check out the full gallery and a few facts that made the brand what it is today here.
In the 1960’s, Tim Horton’s used to be different. It only had served coffee and a couple donuts, plus the actual restaurant was another shade. Tim Horton, the legend, wanted the operation to represent the colours of the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team where he played much of his NHL career at. As the company grew larger, the brand evolved and represented the colour of coffee – dark brown and beige — which was introduced in 1967.
