Tim Hortons opens sixth NI outlet, with five more coffee shops in the pipeline

The new Tim Horton's drive-thru on Boucher Road is the Canadian chain's sixth outlet in the north.

CANADIAN coffee chain Tim Hortons has opened its sixth outlet in Northern Ireland.

Around 50 jobs are expected to be created in the new drive-thru on Belfast’s Boucher Road.

The coffee chain, which opened its first outlet here just three years ago, has confirmed it will open store number seven in Bangor’s Bloomfield Shopping Centre on December 20.

Two more outlets will follow in Ballymena and Antrim in the new year.

Tim Hortons has also been linked to new drive-thru coffee shops at the Kennedy Centre in west Belfast, and Meadow Lane in Portadown.

Speaking in Belfast this week, the coffee group’s chief commercial officer in the UK, Kevin Hydes, said: “The community of Belfast has welcomed us with open arms since the day we opened our first restaurant here three years ago.

“We know our Boucher Road location will make us even more accessible to guests all over the city, whether that’s for a bite to eat with friends, a freshly brewed coffee on-the-go or a cheeky Christmas treat and we look forward to continuing the celebrations with the whole community.”
