They have a semi-strong persence around the world. which they keep on the down-low, especially as they want to reamin "Canaidan" even though it's almost all American owned. My friends who visited Australia say that there is a small chain there that is identical to Timmy's (outfits, colour scheme, menu) except they call it some other name. I'll try to find out what the name was, but when they came back we looked it up and they are owned by the same parent company as Timmys.

The Krispy Kremes seem to have come and gone in Canada. Although they seem to be spreading like crazy in the UK.
I saw this one in London:

:lol: So true... Everything about Tim Hortons is discusting. From their dried out sandwitches to their uniforms - various shades of brown. yum

Although, I don't mind some of their soups & a few types of doughnuts.

I hate baked donuts, they're so soggy. The deep frieds ones are better, even if they are less healthy.

They used to be rolled and tossed in a deep fryer for a few seconds, then flipped over, drip dryed and served. No baking involved.

They're like potato chips!

Yeah, the franchisee for the UK seems to be a lot better than the Eastern/Central Canadian one. KremeKo failed due to poor planning and leadership, not the product, methinks. Krispy Kreme is spreading quite quickly across England. It doesn't hurt that there isn't a Tim Horton's type competitor though.

Once they dominate the world, and put a donut in every city, they will need a new
corporate Head Office. Can anyone design one for Tim's? I think the building could
be shaped like a double double takeout cup, with a top cornice that looks like a
rolled-up-rim, and a a big neon donut on top. Dead classy!
