The store, owned by Mathieu Côté, sold over 29,350 Smile Cookies, raising money for the Suroît Hospital Foundation in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield.
Nationally, the Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign raised over $12 million for charities across Canada.
This is a historic record for the campaign, far eclipsing the previous record of $10.5 million. One hundred percent of the profits will go towards various charities.
"Every year, Tim Hortons restaurant owners go above and beyond to raise money for our annual Smile Cookie campaign, and it is truly inspiring to be part of such an important initiative," Hope Bagozzi, marketing director at Tim Hortons, said in a statement.
A store in Dunnville, Ontario, sold the most Smile Cookies for the fourth year in a row, selling nearly 48,000.
What's better than a delicious latte to give you a little boost during the day? A free one, of course. That's why we're here to let you know that Tunnel Espresso will be officially opening at Time Out Market Montreal on Tuesday, August 10, and will be giving out free coffee all day to its customers.
If you work or live near downtown Montreal, or just love a good freebie, a trip to the Eaton Centre that day is most definitely worth your while.
Tunnel Espresso knows coffee, which is why its roasted coffee beans are sourced from Ethiopia, Colombia, and Brazil.
Along with coffee, the Time Out location will also serve "gobsmackingly good doughnuts and their one-of-a-kind innovation, the 'sconut'; a fried buttermilk biscuit that you won't find anywhere else."
A free coffee plus a tasty donut? Sounds like the perfect day.
Free Coffee At The New Tunnel Espresso Location
When: Free coffee all day on Tuesday, August 10
Address: Time Out Market in Centre Eaton de Montréal, 705, rue Sainte-Catherine O., Montreal, QC
Why You Need To Go: It's pretty hard to say no to some good espresso!
Coffees of any size and sort (Iced, Dark Roast, Decaf) are part of the deal. One coffee is allotted to each app-user, and you do have to complete a transaction beforehand (or load $10 onto the app’s account) before being able to claim your gratis cup of Joe.
Tim Hortons locations across Canada and the U.S. will be participating in this Coffee Day celebration, which runs until October 8th.
Interestingly, National Coffee Day is held on the 29th of September in the United States. International Coffee Day, which Canada actually recognizes, is on October 1st.
Cleverly, Tim Hortons is covering its basis by starting its free-coffee-promo on the American celebration of caffeine and continuing into (and passed) Canada’s day to give thanks to the mighty coffee bean.
And as you’ve no doubt already surmised, Tim Hortons Coffee Day promotion is a thinly-veiled effort to get you to download the coffee chain’s app.
Not that the plan won’t work, because free coffee isn’t something one turns down, especially in the morning.
Nothing says "I'm Canadian" like holding a cup of Tim Hortons coffee in your hand, and maybe a box of Timbits.
But one couple on the east coast decided to take things to the next level by having the most Canadian wedding ever inside of a Tim Hortons.
Tom and Meranda Robicheau from Belleville, Nova Scotia had their first date at a Tim Hortons, reports CBC.
After two years of dating, the pair decided to tie the knot. So what better place to hold the ceremony, and create a nice sense of circularity, than inside Canada’s favourite coffee chain?
The newly christened Robicheau’s were married on September 16th at a Tim Hortons location in Yarmouth, N.S., where Meranda actually works as a baker.
Getting the venue secured wasn’t too hard, then, as Meranda already new the management. Plus, all of Meranda’s coworkers got to attend the wedding, too.
As did many customers. This Tim Hortons shares space with a Wendy’s, which was in service while the ceremony was going on. So while a couple was united in holy matrimony on one side, hungry patrons ordered burgers on the other. Obviously there were perplexed looks from one side to the other.
To make things even more uber Canadian, the wedding ceremony had some added Tim Hortons flair, as a coffee cup mascot posed with the wedding party.
And when the couple rode off after the festivities were finished, Tim Hortons coffee cups followed them, decorated onto the car.
Admittedly a little bit strange (and definitely not for everyone) you have to hand it to this couple. Casting aside standard wedding traditions and practices, the Robicheaus decided to make their ceremony unique and reflective of their relationship.
Getting married inside of a Tim Hortons may not be for everybody, but it was perfect for them, which is what every wedding should be about.
So kudos to the Robicheaus for being themselves and having the most Canadian wedding, ever.
