Tim Hortons is the largest coffee and doughnut chain in Canada. It is well-known for its coffee, doughnuts, Timbits, soups, and sandwiches.
Brought me the love of my life
Tim Hortons' coffee brought me the love of my life. Nine years and two children later my husband still swears he won the best price at Roll Up the Rim to Win, he won ME! He used to be my customer and he would come in to ask for his medium double double with a big smile on his face. Now he gets Me a Tim Hortons coffee every morning while I'm still in bed. (Although we still prefer it at the store in the famous brown cup)

I feel betrayed...
I used to love Tim Hortons, but now I cannot stomach the site of their new drive-thru being constructed in my neighbourhood. They are at a compromised intersection and it is too dangerous to put an entrance/exit on the main street. So, they are putting it on the side street that leads up to the front doors and drop off zone of a large elementary school. Tim Hortons is prepared to use our community and school area to welcome several hundred customer vehicles per day. I feel betrayed. www.nodrivethru.org

A sign that I am home.
Tim Horton's is a Canadian Institution. It is truly a Lovemark. I know that everyone in Canada is a true Tim Horton's lover, even if they enjoy their "Double Double" in the dark of their closet. I have come to love the brown paper cups and tab lids, they are a sign that I am home.

One of my closest friends!
Hey everyone! Meet Timmy - he's one of my closest friends! Whenever I'm feeling down or stressed he is the first one by my side to take away all my worries... I see him at least three times a week and I've even introduced him to all my friends. I don't know what I would do without him - Timmy you're the best! I remember one time when I went to Buffalo and I couldn't believe you were there. It made me feel SO proud to know that you stand for everything I stand for... being Canadian... even when you're not back home. Timmy, I hope this lasts forever.

A feeling I get nowhere else
I recently went to California, and despite their fashion, the weather, and the food, they were missing something important, something crucial to my survival. They were missing the one thing that would have made the trip UNBELIEVABLE. They were missing TIM HORTONS. I LOVE Tim Hortons. NO matter where I am, I go out of my way to search for that PERFECT cup of hot chocolate, or the PERFECT garden vegetable sandwich. When you go into a Tim Hortons you feel welcomed and truly a Canadian, a feeling I get nowhere else. Some would say I'm obsessed, or addicted, but I just think that I love a product that not only satisfies my tastebuds, but makes me feel proud of who I am and where I am going. Take Tim Hortons away from me and you'll be left with a bitter and angry individual.

The secret was you and me
I am actually doing a project on Tim Hortons as a LoveMark. I'm studying advertising and I would say that as for myself, I go crazzzzzzy when I see a Tim Hortons. About 3 months ago, I was drinking about 14 coffees a day! Yep, you heard me right 14 coffees a day! Addiction you would say, don't think so! It's all the concept behind the bissness. The secret to make Tim Hortons a lovemark was you and me. Crazy bastards that need their coffee every day. Nope, just kidding :) It's all the quality behind the products. All the marketing and communication process. As a matter of fact, Tim Hortons have a story. Something that represents us; Canadiens. You guys have to be proud of your Canadian compagnie. Go out there and encourage our county! There's nothing like a good coffee to taste Canada! Tim Hortons Rocks!!!

Nothing even close
I am an authentic Tim Horton's nut. Every day, and I mean every day, I buy at least two large Tim's. Everyone knows I am addicted and friends/business associates bring them along when they come to see me. The person who said it can't even be duplicated at home is right...I am still trying. I am spoiled to the point of refusing other coffees because they are so dramatically worse by comparison. When I am not low-carbing, their donuts are special too....but the coffee is the "nothing even close product". If that's not a Lovemark, I don't know what is.

I love Timmy's
I love Timmy's. It kicks every other coffee shop's butt (especially Starbucks!!). For some reason their coffee is tastier than any other, and even if you make it at home it's not the same. I asked for the secret but they said they would have to kill me.

Worth the trip to Canada
Tim Hortons is the quintessential Canadian donut shop. They're as common in Canada as Starbucks Coffee is, well, almost everywhere else. Founded by a Canadian hockey player, it's probably the best investment an athlete has ever made! The maple glazed donuts are worth the trip to Canada.
