I was just casually looking through the Vancouver Sun today, as one does, and I read something really interesting. Apparently, there are more Starbucks in Vancouver than Tim Hortons! Could this be a battle between Starbucks and Timmy’s (short name for Tim Hortons)?! Dun Dun Dun! The Vancouver Sun reported that there are more Starbucks in Metro Vancouver! More specifically in Richmond, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Delta and Port Moody! But places like Surrey, Langley and Abbotsford have more Tim Hortons!
I find this very interesting, because Tim Hortons is Canada’s number one place for Coffee and Donuts! It symbolizes Hockey as well as Canadian pride! Even the commercials for Tim Hortons really focuses on creating a brand name that represents Canadians. And let’s not forget the fact that Timmy’s is genuinely Canadian, being named after a Canadian hockey player! Starbucks on the other hand is American. Yet, according to the Vancouver Sun, there are more Starbucks than Tim Hortons, which then might suggest that the majority of Vancouverites prefer Starbucks?
…Okay I’m not going to lie, I actually prefer Starbucks drinks over Tim Hortons. There, I said it.
