Iconic Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons opened its first ever outlet in Spain on Friday, December 15 and, get this, people actually lined up for the chance to dine on Timbits and Double Doubles.
The first guest in line, Alejandro Sanchez, lined up 17 hours prior to the opening of the three-storey cafe at Plaza Santo Domingo, Madrid, and was rewarded with free coffee for a year.
Meanwhile, a press release shares that despite the chilly winter weather, the Iced Capp has proven to be the most popular beverage amongst Spaniards.
Canadians abroad might want to check out the new spot too – if not for a taste of home then at least for a sampling of regionally-specific menu items including a tostada with tomato and ham gran reserve and dulce de leche filled donuts.
The chain of cafes has already seen success abroad. In Dubai, for instance, Tims ranks especially high on Trip Advisor.
