Eating Timbits in Afghanistan
Wendy’s International Inc. is expected to spin -off a 15-per-cent stake in Tim Hortons this week, and curious observers are watching to see how many of the shares will land in Canadian hands.
The stock will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange, but the vast bulk of Tim Hortons’s coffee sales still occur north of the border, where the chain has strong roots.
Tim Hortons now has about 2,597 outlets north of the border and 288 in the U.S.
Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan cheered when they learned that Tim Hortons is opening an outlet in Kandahar.
Hmm. Eating Timbits in Afghanistan? A new book idea!
