How many Tim Hortons are there in Canada?

This many. (Zoom in to be extra blown away) To those who are unaware of Timmy’s firm grasp over Canadians, a quick glance at this map should show you how many millions of Canadians are hooked on their coffee. Tim Hortons can be your home away from home while traveling in Canada. They serve primarily Coffee, Donuts, Soup, and Sandwiches, and many of them are open 24 hours of the day. I’ve come across several with free Wi-Fi as well, so for all you flashpackers out there sportin’ a laptop, you can get your caffeine and Facebook fix together.

Tim Hortons was founded in 1964 in Hamilton, Ontario by the famous Canadian hockey player Tim Horton and part-time drummer Jim Charade. In 1967 Tim Hortons partnered with investor Ron Joyce, who took over operations after Tim Horton tragically died when he flipped his sports car driving to Buffalo from Toronto in 1974. The chain later franchised into the multi-million dollar company we see today.
