Despite their brief fall from grace in Canada this past year, Tim Hortons is clearly still doing well for itself. Well enough to open a massive, two-level head office in downtown Toronto with all the amenities that employees could ever dream of. Tim Hortons' new headquarters is located in the historic Exchange Tower at 130 King Street West.
At 65,000 square feet, the headquarters' modern design is also intended to reflect the company's Canadian roots, despite Tim Hortons no longer being Canadian-owned. "The office is decorated with imagery of original Tim Hortons coffee shops and of Tim Horton himself to remind everyone of the brand's humble and unique origins," the company said in their statement this morning.
But, the space provides Tim Hortons corporate employees with more than just a stunning atmosphere to work in. It has everything to make you want to stay and relax there, even when you're off the clock.
Tim Hortons says the new HQ boasts tons of natural light, over 20 coffee and tea brewing stations, of-the-art test kitchen, a large staff café, and an outdoor terrace complete with Muskoka chairs and sweeping views of the city. The open-concept office also has tons of "public work zones", including collaborative meeting spaces and cozy seating areas.
Here's a bit more about the office's exciting features:
- The ultimate Canadian kitchen mirrors a restaurant design. At the heart of the office, this is a truly communal space where employees can share ideas over breakfast, lunch or coffee
- Public work zones encourage a collaborative approach through restaurant seating, tables, booths, and magnetic whiteboard walls throughout the office
- Town hall and training space can accommodate hundreds at a time for internal events and conferences
- Custom signage and wall décor tell the Tims story, a key element of the design. Touchpoints throughout the space communicate the bean to cup story, community outreach, and the overall design incorporates unique elements that connect employees and visitors to the brand in authentic ways
Tim Hortons' President says that the intention of the new office is to "be a celebration of the brand and coffee culture and a welcoming place that brings people together."
