Tim Hortons on Wednesday announced plans to spend $100 million revamping its distribution network as part of a multi-year plan to support franchisees and improve the in-restaurant consumer experience.
The company says the plan will include new warehouses in Alberta and British Columbia as well expanding at its existing warehouse in Debert, N.S.
Once completed, the new warehouse in British Columbia will service all of the province, while the new warehouse in Alberta will handle deliveries in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The upgraded warehouse in Debert, N.S. will continue to act as the hub for restaurants in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. The company says Tim Hortons restaurants in Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, and parts of Quebec will continue to be served by its third-party distribution partners.
Tim Hortons expects to create 150 new jobs once completed.
