Today, Tim Hortons opened its first restaurant in China. The new restaurant, located in the People’s Square in central Shanghai, is the first Tim Hortons in China since the company signed an exclusive master franchise joint agreement with the Cartesian Capital Group (“Cartesian”) last year. 

“We’re excited to bring the iconic Tim Hortons brand and a piece of Canada around the globe”, says Alex Macedo, President, Tim Hortons.  “China is an attractive growth market and we can’t wait for guests to try our classic favourites and some new offerings crafted specifically to the Chinese market.”
