Canada is semi- socialist, but the PM is limited. I’m not sure there are any limits on king hussein.
The BK’s around here are closed up.
I like Timmy’s. BK, not so much.
I think they are trying to prevent that from happening again.
For old time sake: ‘Bring back jobs now. Just sayin.’’
It’s a shame Horton never lived to see this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Horton
The BKs around here are closed up.......
Always seems to be a has been, a troubled business, while Tim Horton’s is a success. A strange merger
Well, K-Mart bought Sears.
Well, K-Mart bought Sears.>>>>>>
Another rousing success!
Las Vegas Steve Wynn said three years ago that doing biz with the ChiComs is easier than with the Obama administration.
Western PA and NY has seen an explosion of growth with Tim Horton’s storefronts popping up in every mildly populated town... and have been very poular with the residents. Personally, I’m not a fan of Timmay’s coffee but all summer long they have had any size iced tea for $1.00... which works for me... Saturdays and Sundays when I am hard tasking outside or in the shop on the farm and need to take a break and head into town to the hardware store or feedmill, I hit Timmay’s and get my $2.12 worth of real, unsweetened iced tea.
We kinda like Timmy’s coffee, especially when we splurge and get a double-double.
That’s kind of a weird story. You don’t need to merge two companies to invert. That must just be one of the incentives.
Are they going to bring out a line of gay donuts to go with their rainbow burger?
Many moons ago a group of friends were planning a picnic. One of the guys that worked at BK smuggled some patties out. They were paper thin and turned to mush on the charcoal grill, pretty much inedible sludge. Don’t imagine they’ve improved any.
It’s not Timmy’s coffee, it’s Timmys coffee. They are prohibited from using the apostrophe in their advertising or logos. No joke. That’s why it’s called Tim Hortons and not Tim Horton’s.
