NU Perking Up with Spring 2011 Addition of Tim Hortons

by Press Release

Niagara University is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with one of North America's most prominent cafes, Tim Hortons. When students arrive for the spring semester, the current Jazzman's Cafe location in the Gallagher Center will have been transformed into a limited menu Tim Hortons Café & Bake Shop, serving the company's signature Always Fresh coffee and donuts along with new items such as espressos, cappuccinos and lattes.

While Tim Hortons currently has over 3,000 restaurants throughout Canada and approximately 600 franchises in the United States, this will be the company's first foray into Lewiston and onto Niagara University's campus.

We continue to survey our students about their food service experiences, and what they would like to see here at Niagara University, said Christy Ferguson, the university's director of contract services. The addition of the Tim Hortons Café & Bake Shop is in direct response to the students request for a Tim Hortons on campus. We are all quite excited for its opening next semester.

As Tim Hortons continues to expand in the U.S. market, we are especially excited to partner with Niagara University, said David Clanachan, chief operations officer, U.S. and International, Tim Hortons. We look forward to serving students, staff and visitors and becoming part of the Purple Eagle family.

Tim Hortons is the fourth largest publicly-traded restaurant chain in North America based on market capitalization, and the largest in Canada. Operating in the quick service segment of the restaurant industry, Tim Hortons appeals to a broad range of consumer tastes, with a menu that includes premium coffee, flavored cappuccinos, specialty teas, home-style soups, fresh sandwiches, wraps, hot breakfast sandwiches and fresh baked goods, including our trademark donuts. As of Oct. 3, 2010, Tim Hortons had 3,703 restaurants, including 3,082 in Canada and 621 in the United States. More information about the company is available at www.timhortons.com.
