Tim Hortons Philippines launches in Bonifacio
Tim Hortons Philippines has launched its first branch at Uptown Place Mall in Bonifacio Global City.
It is the Canadian cafe and bakeshop’s first foray into Southeast Asia.
Miss Universe Canada 2016 Siera Bearchell was in Manila for restaurant’s ribbon-cutting ceremony. With her were Department of Tourism secretary Wanda Teo, Tim Hortons president Elias Diaz Sese and executives of TH Coffee Services Philippines, which is the Philippines partner for Tim Hortons.
The store is known for its signature pastries, including bite-sized doughnuts known as Timbits, and Iced Capp, an ice-blended coffee drink.
Another speciality is the Double Double, a coffee with two servings of cream and two of sugar.
There are also full-sized doughnuts, plus regular and breakfast sandwiches. Breakfast offerings also include muffins.
Tim Hortons was named after its founder, a National Hockey League player, and first opened in Ontario in 1964.
Restaurant Brands International announced its plans last July to launch the Canadian brand in the Philippines.
