CANADIAN coffee chain Tim Hortons has announced its first UK store will be on Argyle Street.

As we revealed on Friday, the famous bakery and coffee house is coming to Britain for the first time. 

And bosses have chosen Glasgow to be the location for the flagship store.

In what is the firm's 150th year, Tim Hortons is opening in Scotland first and then will roll out across the rest of the UK over the next 12 months.

The firm has high hopes for the UK launch, saying they want Brits to "fall in love" with the coffee chain.

Gurprit Dhaliwal, COO of Tim Hortons UK and Ireland, said: “We’ve witnessed Tim Hortons phenomenal success in Canada and wanted to replicate this in Great Britain.

“It’s hard to explain just how important Tim Hortons is to Canadians – it’s not just a restaurant, it’s a way of life and a place of ‘home’, and we’re positive Great Britain will fall in love the brand.” 

The Glasgow branch will open in early May and the company promises plenty of "Canadian charm".

Tim Hortons had advertised earlier this year for staff to work in the new branch.

The company claims eight out of 10 cups of coffee sold across Canada are served at Tim Hortons and more than 5.3 million Canadians – approximately 15 per cent of the population – visit Tim Hortons daily. 

Elías Díaz Sesé, president of Tim Hortons brand, added: “Bringing Tim Hortons to Great Britain and Glasgow, is something we’re really excited about. 

"Great Britain is a nation of coffee lovers, so we’re confident Tim Hortons will continue to be a leader in the quick service restaurant sector across the pond.”
