Does Tim Still Work There?

Note: I anticipate that some of my Canadian friends might want to comment on this.

A week and a half ago, Elissa asked me to perform a small service (like in The Godfather). I was happy to oblige and thought nothing of it.

Selby and Big Red, napping in my office.

She was stranded, seven months pregnant, with her sister, Kelliann at Dallas Ft. Worth airport, which apparently is a bad place to be when there are lots of storms in the Southeast.  They were on their way home from Houston, after spending the weekend with Megan, Alicia, Andrew, and his mom, Carmen. They were reviewing some of the plans for Megan and Andrew’s wedding next February, including Megan selecting her gown.

The father of my soon to be born granddaughter was heading out on business to Montreal, Canada, which required me to be called into service because Selby was home alone.  If all the planes were on time, Selby would have been home alone for only a few hours, which is no big deal. Unfortunately, the girl’s flights from Dallas to Columbia were canceled, re-booked and canceled several times.  So, I drove to Columbia and brought Selby back to our house for the 36 hours it took for the girls to finally get back.

Maybe because he felt guilty or maybe just because he knows I drink coffee all day,  Cole, my ginger son-in-law returned from Canada with 800g of  Tim Hortons Coffee (Original Blend).

I had never heard of Mr. Horton, but as I typed “Tim” into a search engine, it autocompleted the full name and took me to a plethora of reading options and in eight languages no less.  That is a big company. I wonder if Tim still works there?

Tomorrow morning I will try this Canadian coffee and ponder the company’s worldwide market penetration.

My guess is that it will be pretty good.

Thank you, Cole.

PS. . . Selby had a great time, playing with her cousins and sleeping on Alicia’s side of the bed. Hopefully, I will never need to ask Elissa to do me a service in return.

    I am not a regular consumer of Tim’s but I can say that depending on who you ask, the taste of their coffee would bring out different taste perceptions.I find it pretty ok. Others would say its main rival would be McCafe from McDonalds. Others would say that the best coffee would be that coming from Colombia. Whatever. You can buy tin cans or bags of Tim’s coffee beans/powder at the franchise branch or even at a local Canadian grocery. Other Canucks(nickname for Canadian citizens) would rather buy Tim’s coffee at a Tim’s branch than prepare it at home. They say that the flavor is not the same. Enjoy!

    It’s a big company part of a bigger company – it belongs to Burger King.

    As for Tim, he passed away 45 years ago in a car accident. He was, at the time, much better known for playing hockey.

    As a Canadian, I should like Timmy’s coffee, but I actually prefer the coffee from Dairy Queen. I find the dark blends too bitter.

  4. If I even liked coffee I might give this a try….maybe someday I will grow up to like coffee. On second thought perhaps not as I am already past the growing up phase. oh well…….

    I’m not a coffee drinker, but once a week I have a Tim Horton’s Iced Capp (made with milk instead of cream…)
    Tim Hortons is part of Restaurant Brands International Inc. (RBI) which is a Canadian multinational fast food holding company that also owns Burger King and Popeyes. The company is majority-owned by the Brazilian investment company 3G Capital (the previous majority owner of Burger King) holding a 51% stake.
