Number of Tim Hortons restaurants in North America 2007-2019, by country

How many Tim Hortons are there in Canada?

In 2019, Toronto-based quick service restaurant chain Tim Hortons operated and franchised a total of 4,932 restaurants worldwide. The vast majority of these were located in its home nation of Canada - the second largest number of Tim Hortons restaurants were found in the United States.

Success of Tim Hortons

With nearly five thousand units worldwide, Tim Hortons is the second largest quick service chain in Canada. Comparatively, there were only around one and a half thousand McDonald’s restaurants in Canada as of 2018. Top of the list in terms of units was the MTY Group, which includes subsidiaries such as Bâton Rouge and Baja Fresh, accounting for nearly six thousand establishments in Canada in 2018. However, Tim Hortons was by far the most successful restaurant chain in Canada measured by gross sales - the company accounted for gross sales of 8.9 billion Canadian dollars in 2018. Comparatively, the MTY Group only accounted for gross sales of approximately 2.7 billion Canadian dollars.

How much do Canadians love Tim Hortons?

The answer is, a lot. Given its success as a QSR in Canada it most likely comes as no surprise that Tim Hortons is also the leading coffee chain in Canada in terms of gross sales. It therefore surpasses global coffee powerhouse Starbucks, which generated gross sales in Canada of around 1.8 billion Canadian dollars in 2018.
