In “How Tim Hortons lost its way,” a column by Maclean’s food writer Corey Mintz, he discusses the fallacy of Tim Hortons as a true Canadian brand (it’s currently owned by Brazilian-American food conglomerate Restaurant Brands International, which also owns Popeye’s and Burger King). Mintz also discusses Tim Hortons’ new Innovation Cafe in his piece, the supposed up-market, experimental version of Tim Hortons that looks to appeal to millennials and mimic Starbucks.
