Tim Hortons goes small to make it work in the U.S.

The Bottom Line: The coffee chain’s parent company still believes the brand can work south of the Canadian border, but it first had to change.

Here's why Burger King and Tim Hortons' owner just hired Patrick Doyle

The Bottom Line: Restaurant Brands International was formed in 2014 for aggressive growth. But challenges at its two biggest brands have held it back.

The former Domino’s CEO will make a $30 million investment in the owner of Burger King, Popeyes, Tim Hortons and Firehouse and will get options worth close to $200 million.

The Bottom Line: The brands’ international unit expansion has taken off, providing parent company Restaurant Brands International with a key growth pillar.

Brand operator Restaurant Brands International now gets a third of its sales through digital channels. Sales at Burger King and Popeyes also improve in the U.S.

The Bottom Line: While the two chains and their revitalization plans are different, the Canadian coffee brand’s strong second-quarter results give its sister brand hope of a comeback in its U.S. market.

The company unveiled a 900-square-foot drive-thru-only location among its new designs, which also include a larger version with a 24-seat dining room.

Tim Hortons’ Canada sales surge, Popeyes declined and Firehouse Subs beat difficult comparisons.

The coffee chain believes it has considerable potential selling food in the afternoons. But it is also pushing more espresso and cold beverages and, naturally, drive-thrus.

The coffee and doughnut chain has a deal to add 300 locations in the country over the next decade as it works to continue its international growth.
