Why do some restaurants sell certain donuts and others don't?
In order to maintain consistency across our chain, there are a number of "Required Products" that every restaurant must offer, including guest favourites like Boston Cream and Apple Fritter. However, a list of "Optional Products" allows our restaurants to customize what they offer based on their specific guests' feedback and preferences. That is why you may see certain types of baked goods at one restaurant and not at another.
How are your donuts and other baked goods made?
Tim Hortons donuts and baked goods are prepared at our bakery in Brantford, Ontario, Canada. Prior to serving, they are baked and finished (with fillings and/or glazes/icings) at your neighbourhood Tim Hortons restaurant. Team members can bake in small batches throughout the day, so that guests should find their favourite products on the shelf more often. We believe this baking system offers our guests the best product, each and every time.
