Re: Something to look at while you drink your coffee

He probably got a deal on it...the original owner decided he wanted a bigger boat in the middle of construction.

Tim's coffee is not bad. Their donuts used to be better when they were made fresh in each store. Some years ago they ripped out all the fryers and replaced them with big freezers. Now they are made in a big factory back east somewhere, frozen and shipped to the stores where they are microwaved to finish cooking them. (although they do glaze and fill them on premises...)
They have never been the same since! I can understand how they wouldn't catch on in the USA where they are used to the likes of Krispy Creme and their hyper-sweet cardiac bombs! (which never caught on up here!)

if you don't like the price, go to Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts... oh, right, there are none. Both chains will happily ship product in care packages, along with the aforementioned ice cream purveyors, but only Timmies actually opened a damn restaurant, staffed by unarmed civilian timmies employees, in a friggin' war zone.


you're welcome.

i'm okay with the drive-through lines. To get the underground menu, you gotta walk in anyway. There is no way you are gonna get a breakfast sammie with double bacon on a split maple dip donut instead of a biscuit at the drive through. And you're in and out in under 3 minutes.

Don't kid yourself there fella, it was run by Indians and Pakastanis prolly getting less than what we consider minimum wage......and there was a better place called "The Green Bean"

By the way I know it was a war zone...thanks. Spent quite a while traveling out of Bagram and then Tarin Kowt(SE Province).... You prolly know that from all the action you saw there.. But I can honestly tell you that where these places were located, they were relatively out of harms way. So Don't try to through that bs my way.

The boat shown is way out of my limits I am glad he can afford such a boat. I am sure he busted his ass getting to where he is today. I just wish these CEO's and Company owners would give a little more to those giving it all!

Maybe in your neck of the woods, but over here by Niagara Falls the drive thru wait time can be double that. Tims continues to attempt to be all things to all people, like all the big franchises, but has dropped the ball on customer service. There are more staff working the drive thru window than at the counter so the line ups are long inside too. Predictibly mediocre coffee, substandard fare, better to eat at home.

Doubt many of their low paid staff can afford even a tender.

But they are huge on supporting youth hockey, soccer and summer camps

Re: Something to look at while you drink your coffee

I was going to buy that yacht, but then I realized during the design phase, "man, the kids are going to spill Kool Aid on this couch and it'll never come out." The builder wouldn't make the cushion covers from sunbrella, so I was all like, "I'm outta here."
