1-in-5 BC coffee drinkers would 'never' buy from Tim Hortons (POLL)
Although Tim Hortons double-doubles are likely the most emblematic of Canadian brands, when it comes to choosing their coffee, one in five British Columbians choose not to visit the popular franchise.
According to a new survey from Research Co., 20% of residents who go out for coffee would “never” visit Tim Hortons for a cup.
The poll found that older residents were not as particular about Tim Hortons coffee than younger respondents to the survey, with 25% of respondents aged 18-34 saying “never” to Tim Hortons, while only 13% of those ages 55 shared the same sentiments.
The Starbucks/Tim Hortons rivalry is also alive and well when it comes to coffee, with 18% of people also saying they wouldn’t buy a cup from the US-based chain when purchasing coffee outside of the house.
