Restaurant Brands has unveiled a new plan aimed at reviving “soft” sales across its Tim Hortons estate.

Announcing the move in its first quarter trading update, Daniel Schwartz, chief executive of parent company, Restaurant Brands, said the plan centred on improving the restaurant experience, product excellence and brand communications.

The company is pumping $700m into the plan, which will also include a greater focus on the Tim Hortons app.

It follows a 0.3% drop in like-for-like sales across the Tim Hortons estate during the quarter, while Burger saw like-for-like sales grow 11.3%.
