Coming to Singapore
Japanese trading firm Marubeni Corporation announced the chain’s upcoming expansion into Singapore in its Feb. 28, 2023 press release.
It stated that it has entered an exclusive agreement with Tim Hortons Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. through its wholly-owned Singapore-based subsidiary Marubeni Growth Capital Asia Pte. Ltd (MGCA) to bring Tim Hortons into the country.
Meanwhile, Marubeni is also in discussions to bring Tim Hortons to Malaysia and Indonesia.
MGCA said it plans to serve quality coffee and fresh food that would also be “tailored to local consumer tastes” while also providing “an international café experience” to customers.
No further details were given about when and where the first Tim Hortons outlet will open in Singapore.
Opening from as early as April 2023
According to Nikkei Asia, however, coffee lovers in Singapore can look forward to the opening of Tim Hortons outlets in the fiscal year starting April 2023.
With the upcoming expansion into Singapore, as well as Malaysia and Indonesia, Marubeni plans to open “hundreds” of new Tim Hortons outlets by 2033, Nikkei Asia added.
Mothership has reached out to Marubeni Growth Capital Asia and will update the story accordingly.
