After sales and profits fell at Tim Hortons in the last quarter, the Canadian company has confirmed that they’ll be taking things back to basics in 2020. Their first step will be to improve their hot drinks by introducing fresh coffee brewers and offering low-fat and plant-based milk options. Tim Hortons' milk alternatives will soon include skim milk, as well as almond milk.\nThe coffee shop’s parent company Restaurant Brands International Inc. (RBI) have made plans to take the chain back to their roots, after experiencing the slump in sales.\nIn a conference call with analysts on Monday, CEO Jose Cil explained, “At Tim Hortons, our performance did not reflect the incredible power of our brand.”\n“It is clear that we have a large opportunity to refocus on our founding values and what has made us famous with our guests over the years, which will be the basis for our plan in 2020," Cil added.\nThe Canadian brand intends to kick-off their new approach by improving the quality of their coffee.\nAccording to The Canadian Press via Global News, this will start with fresh coffee brewers for more consistent quality, and a greater number of milk options for customers.\nBoth almond milk and skim milk are expected to be added to the menu this spring.\nView this post on Instagram Today is #NationalCoffeeDay!

Restaurant Brands' CEO acknowledges mistakes were made at Tim Hortons.
