Since the Nov. 29 launch of three Timbiebs Timbits — bite-size donuts in the flavors of chocolate white fudge, chocolate sour cream and birthday cake waffle — the Canadian coffee chain is having a moment.

Owned by Restaurant Brands International, which also operates Burger King and Popeyes, Tim Horton’s is experiencing “notable growth,” RBI chief executive Jose Cil said in a statement on Tuesday.

Same-store sales at Tim Hortons rose 10.3% in the fourth quarter, from an 11% decline a year earlier, RBI said

Additionally, RBI’s 14% rise in total revenue to $1.5 billion for the quarter ended Dec. 31 was spurred by increased sales at Tim Horton’s – which had lagged during the pandemic as many more and more consumers were working from home — Burger King and Popeyes, Cil says.

The Ontario-born singer put his star power behind the channel in what he said was one of my ‘dreams’ because ‘I grew up on Tim Hortons and it’s always been something close to my heart’ , he said last year of the 57-year-old channel.

The collaboration also includes merchandise, a $30 beanie, $30 fanny pack, and $30 tote bag, for a limited time.
