Food-service franchise system Tim Hortons recently unveiled its new open-concept head office in downtown Toronto.
Designed by architecture firm Gensler, the 6039-m2 (65,000-sf) two-level space features more than 20 coffee and tea brewing stations, as well as a test kitchen, staff café area, and an outdoor terrace, complete with Muskoka chairs.
The office’s décor echoes the company’s history, complete with imagery of original Tim Hortons coffee shops and of the brand’s namesake.
“We wanted our new head office design to be a celebration of the brand and coffee culture, and a welcoming place that brings people together,” said company president Alex Macedo. “We chose the heart of Toronto because it will help attract the next generation of talented Tim Hortons employees and ultimately fuel our growth.”
