Restaurant brand culture matters: Tim Hortons’ problems in Canada tell us why

Restaurant Brands International is getting resistance from the chain’s operators that it didn’t get with Burger King, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The chain and its franchisees are spending hundreds of millions to remodel restaurants in Canada.

But the company's Tim Hortons and Popeyes chains both struggled to win over consumers last quarter.

Restaurant Brands International also named Matt Dunnigan CFO.

Some responses have been extreme—and controversial.

The company is suing operators in Minnesota and Missouri over unpaid franchise fees.

Along with themed drinks and pastries, the chain is also offering limited-edition ugly sweater koozies.

Diners continue to seek spicy flavors and out-there combinations.

The drink will be available for a limited time at two of its locations.
