A popular Canadian café chain is set to create jobs in Glasgow as it opens its first UK outlet.

Coffee giant Tim Horton will bring business to the city’s Argyle Street as part of a “nationwide expansion”.

The UK’s coffee market is worth £6n annually, and the firm are looking to cash in on the growing market.

Gurprit Dhaliwal, chief operating officer at Tim Hortons UK and Ireland, said: “We’ve witnessed Tim Hortons’ phenomenal success in Canada, and wanted to replicate this in Great Britain.

“It’s hard to explain just how important Tim Hortons is to Canadians, it’s not just a restaurant, it’s a way of life and a place of ‘home’, and we’re positive Great Britain will fall in love with the brand.”

The company described Britain as a “key strategic market”.

Eight out of ten coffees served in Canada are bought at Tim Horton’s, and Glaswegians can get their caffeine fix when the shop opens next month.
