The end of an era is upon us.
Today, Restaurant Brands International, has announced that the company will be shedding decades of Canadian history by moving the Tim Hortons head office to downtown Toronto.
In a press release, RBI noted that this move will make the “foster collaboration and connectivity.” In addition, this new space will show it will be “reinforcing our commitment to our Canadian roots and continuing to push forward as a leader in our industry.”
So there you have it. The final nail in the coffin since the merger happened a few years ago.
“This major metropolitan environment will provide a platform for us to further expand our leadership in Canada by bringing us closer to our business partners and the people on the front lines of tomorrow’s industry trends,” said Alex Macedo, President of Tim Hortons. “This change is another part of our journey to build a stronger Tim Hortons and will enable us to harness the power of technology and innovation to better serve our Guests and Restaurant Owners for years to come.”
Timmies execs also hope that this move will be a “positive change” for current and future employees.
The new location is a 65,000-square-foot space and will host exclusive speaker series.
