Tim Hortons Franchise Opens NHL Season In Pittsburgh And Long Island, Ny

Famous coffee, donuts now available for Penguins and Islanders fans

DUBLIN, OH // PRNewswire // - Tim Hortons and hockey go together like coffee and donuts. Now NHL fans in Pittsburgh and Long Island, NY can enjoy them all.

Tim Hortons, the fourth largest quick service restaurant chain in North America, has signed agreements to serve its always fresh coffee, cappuccinos and "Timbit™" donut holes at Consol Energy Center, home of the Pittsburgh Penguins, and Nassau Coliseum, home of the New York Islanders.

Fans attending home games of the Buffalo Sabres, Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets already enjoy Tim Hortons' products. The Consul Energy Center is the first Tim Hortons' location in Pittsburgh. Nassau Coliseum is the first location on Long Island.

"We're proud to bring Tim Hortons coffee and Timbits to Pittsburgh and Long Island," said David Clanachan, Chief Operations Officer, U.S. and International, Tim Hortons Inc. "Serving Penguins and Islanders fans is a natural fit, considering our heritage and ongoing connection with hockey. We'll look for similar business development opportunities and continue our franchising expansion in the U.S. Northeast and Midwest."

With more than 3,600 restaurant locations in North America, including nearly 600 in the U.S., Tim Hortons was ranked as the second-fastest growing restaurant chain in the country in 2009, according to research analyst firm Technomics.

Tim Hortons coffee and baked goods are also served at triple AAA baseball ballparks and NCAA stadiums, including the home of the University of Michigan Wolverines.

The company was founded in 1964 by NHL hall-of-famer Tim Horton, who played hockey for the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins and Buffalo Sabres until his death in 1974. Tim Hortons' U.S. headquarters is located in Dublin, Ohio.
