Mumbai, India – Following its initial launch in the Indian market in August 2022, Canadian coffee shop Tim Hortons has announced two new stores in the city of Mumbai. More specifically, they will be located in the city hotspots of Bandra West, Linking Road and Andheri, Lokhandwala.

Tim Hortons launched in India in 2022 as part of an exclusive agreement with a joint venture entity owned by Apparel Group and Gateway Partners called Apparel Gateway Café India, the master franchisee of the Tim Hortons brand in India.

David Shear, president of international at Restaurant Brands International, said, “It’s brilliant to see how enthusiastically India has welcomed Tim Hortons, and we’re particularly excited about bringing our premium coffee and delicious food into new regions in India.”

Meanwhile, Neeraj Teckchandani, CEO of Apparel Group, commented, “This milestone is a significant step towards our long-term potential to grow the brand in India, increase market share and strengthen our position as the leading retailer of Tim Hortons.”

Teckchandani added, “We are committed to continuously evolving and curating our offerings and adapting to the region’s preferences and culture. We continue to strategically expand our footprint across the country and are on track to grow Tim Hortons in the region.”

Tim Hortons recently partnered with multinational conglomerate Marubeni Corporation to launch in Singapore and later on to Malaysia and Indonesia.
