The new headquarters resides in a 65,000-square-foot space in the “historic” Exchange Tower on King Street West, downtown Toronto.

According to the company, the new move was made to “attract and retain top talent.”

Speaking of moves, the company is also considering expanding to China.

The two levels feature only the best, Canadian maple paneling and “iconic Canadian symbols,” throughout the space.

The walls are decorated with pictures of our beautiful landscape, children playing hockey and of course, Canadians enjoying Tim Hortons coffee.

The words: “teamwork, confidence and resilience,” are also captured on the walls, perhaps summing up what it means to be Canadian.

The new Tim Hortons headquarters includes public work zones,  a town hall,  a training space for employees and an “ultimate Canadian kitchen,” where employees can share their ideas over breakfast, lunch or dinner. 

“We wanted our new head office design to be a celebration of the brand and coffee culture and a welcoming place that brings people together,” said Alex Macedo, President, Tim Hortons

Designed by Gensler, an architecture and design firm, the new headquarters contain 20 different coffee and tea stations.

A new test kitchen, a large staff cafe and an outdoor terrace are also big features in the office.

“The notion of community is evident through spaces such as the generously sized, welcoming reception area, which feels more like a living room than corporate office,” says Macedo. “It is just one of a number of features that makes this space not only feel uniquely Canadian, but uniquely Tims.”

Does it get any more Canadian than Tim Hortons?
