Tim Hortons has revealed plans to open its biggest ever UK drive-through right here in Manchester.

The Canadian coffee and donut chain has not long opened a flagship city centre store on Market Street, and now bosses are gearing up to unveil another site at the end of this month.

Tipped to be the ‘largest’ drive-through in the whole of the UK, it will be the ninth Greater Manchester site for the hospitality giant.

It will open on Monday, August 29 at 7am, offering a year’s worth of free drinks to the first customer to drive up to the hatch.

Kevin Hydes, Chief Commercial Officer of Tim Hortons® franchise in the U.K commented: “As our presence in Greater Manchester grows, we continue to be surprised and delighted at the demand that exists for Tim Hortons in the area.

The chain also offers a simple breakfast menu of hot and cold sandwiches and brioche, alongside lunch items including wraps, soups and chilli, all of which are prepared freshly to order on site.
