The brand is running a month of giveaways including free drinks and donuts as well as exclusive deals. These promotions will be available to anyone who activates their Tim Hortons digital card - redeemed via scanning a QR code within the store or online.
Kevin Hydes, chief commercial officer of Tim Hortons franchise in the UK, said: “Today is a momentous occasion for our brand as we officially open the doors of our first Yorkshire restaurant. We have been incredibly excited to launch in a city renowned for its ice hockey and know we’ve had many eager fans waiting to get their hands on our famed Canadian offering.”
He added: “We cannot wait to welcome each and every guest through the door.”
