Tim Hortons, the Canadian coffee chain, will open its first UK drive thru site on Bury New Road, Manchester later this month.

The Bury New Road restaurant is the first Tim Hortons in England, and will be the first of several openings in the Manchester area over the next month.

The Bury New Road restaurant will also feature a regional training academy.

The first Tim Hortons restaurant in the UK opened on Argyle Street in Glasgow at the start of June.

Kevin Hydes, chief finance and commercial officer of the Tim Hortonsfranchise in the UK, said: “The Tim Hortons Drive Thru is a major part of Canadian culture, and we think the UK is going to love our great tasting coffee and quality food, served quickly and with a smile. The buzz around our recent Glasgow and Cardiff openings was phenomenal, and we couldn’t be more excited to open our first Drive Thru, and our first restaurant in England.”
