New menu items are on the horizon for Tim Hortons, Popeyes, and Burger King in 2021, including upgrades to existing products.
After experiencing the effects of the pandemic on the restaurant industry, Jose Cil, CEO of Restaurant Brands International, noted in a press release that though they have learned how to manage businesses during this time, the brand realized there is still more opportunity for growth.
This year, the three notable brands will be executing new menu items including new lunch sandwiches and cold drinks at Tim Hortons, new innovation on the already beloved Chicken Sandwich at Popeyes, and a brand new chicken sandwich at Burger King.
“This is a deliberate journey, now more than a year-long at each of the brands, to create quality, craveable menu items that excite our guests,” said Cil.
What the new menu items are at Tim Hortons is still unknown but so far, the brand has recently gone through its own upgrades including the shift over to freshly cracked eggs in all its breakfast sandwiches and the rollout of the new dark roast blend of coffee.

In 2020, RBI also made necessary changes and upgrades to their other fast-food joints including making the Whopper free of colours, flavours, and preservatives from artificial sources, as well as two years of work put in to create the famously popular chicken sandwich from Popeyes.
Last year also saw the upgrade of outdoor digital menus at about 10,000 Burger King and Tim Horton drive-thrus across Canada and the US, which is also in-store for Popeyes by mid-2022.
And as for 2021, well, get excited for new drink options at Tim’s.
