It’s an exciting time for Tim Hortons. The Canadian-based restaurant chain is expanding to China and offering food delivery service in Vancouver.

The plan is part of a franchise joint venture agreement with Cartesian Capital Group, where they are aiming to open more than 1,500 restaurants throughout China over the next decade.

“We have two main priorities building and strengthening our brand in Canada; and expanding our iconic Canadian brand to the rest of the world,” said Tim Hortons President Alex Macedo. “China’s population and vibrant economy represent an excellent growth opportunity for Tim Hortons in the coming years. We have already seen Canada’s Chinese community embrace Tim Hortons and we now have the opportunity to bring the best of our Canadian brand to China with established partners who have expertise in the industry and the country.”

This comes two years after they had announced expanding with stores in the UK.

If you’re craving some Timbits and coffee but are short on time, you’re in luck. Tim Hortons is also testing out food delivery service in the Vancouver, Edmonton and Ottawa regions.

After launching this week—the chain is partnering with Skip The Dishes; offering food delivery service through the mobile app.

They plan to deliver to more cities in the near future after they test out the three regions first.
