Tim Hortons Shuts U.S. Headquarters

In a shift in its efforts to grow business in the American marketplace, Tim Hortons has closed its U.S. headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, where it had about 30 employees, and will centralize its market strategies in Canada.

The café chain’s owners, 3G Capital Partners, will drive future growth from the newly built Tim Hortons Global Restaurant Support Centre in Oakville, Ontario.

Tim Hortons, which has been merged with Burger King under parent Restaurant Brands Int’l., says it will support its efforts in the U.S. with an American-based field-operations team. The chain has 892 stores in the U.S. as well as 3,773 in Canada; another 59 are in the Gulf Cooperation Council.

3G Capital, which acquired Tim Hortons in December, is known for its cost-cutting measures. It already had eliminated about 15% of the chain’s staff at its headquarters and regional offices.
