Tim Hortons debuted in 1964 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, focusing exclusively on coffee and donuts. Over time, the Canadian-based brand broadened its menu to include flavored cappuccinos, specialty and steeped teas, soups, sandwiches and baked goods including bagels, cookies, croissants and pastries. After being acquired by Wendy’s International in 1995, Tim Hortons expanded into the United States. The chain went public in 2006 (Ticker: THI). Its 714 U.S. locations generated U.S. domestic systemwide sales of $479.0 million for the year ended Dec. 2011.
