    Burger King BOUGHT Tim Hortons and promptly consolidated and Moved their Corporate offices to Canada to avoid high Corporate Taxation under Obama.

    Known as a " Tax Inversion".

    Burger King is making a move on Popeyes.
    Started out of New Orleans by Al Copeland.
    ( Reuters release 2 minutes ago)

    The " positioning" is part of the strategy.

    I would buy stock in Cholestorol and Heart Medication pharmaceutical Corporations based on this knowlege . . .

    I try to avoid them. However my 9-5 job takes me to a lot of rural locations.

    If I want a coffee, a lot of times they are the only game in town.

    All things being equal, I go elsewhere

    I make 98% of my coffee at home or at work.
    The 2% I try to give business to independent coffee shops.
    I am not always successful: That McDonalds at Bathurst/College is very CONVENIENT, particularly when coffee is $1.

    If you bought a cup of Tim's swill everyday, except the weekends, it costs you 465.40 and large well over 500. Here is my Tim slaying solution. I had a friend who owned a Tim's and he was so busy he didn't have time to go to the bank. He rolled up his cash in tin foil and put it in his freezer.

    My little 4-cup maker, good on energy, good on mimizing the amount of grinds for daily brew. $40 for unit.

    I’ll admit that I was indulgent on Tim Hortons for years. I convinced myself it was out of convenience. Since the beginning of the year, I can not bring myself into that place...not once. What the franchisees did to their employees is sickening, childish and petty.

    The only symptoms I’m experiencing are loads of extra money in my pocket, increased vitality and quality of life.

    Good riddance ‘Tims’

    The same combination of sugar and cream I order always tastes different from one Tim to another. That made me stopped buying from them.

    I had a sandwich and soup back in January and it was so sad I decided it was my last visit to the iconic chain. I remembered the early morning news that that Tim Horton had been killed in a crash on the QEW in his sports car. He was a delight to watch play and he was a true legend. Unfortunately the monkeys that run the chain now don't come anywhere close to matching his integrity and values. Canadians should be ashamed at the way his legacy has been frittered away.

    It is charitable at best to call anything Tim's serves 'food.' More like microwaved plastic.

    I could never understand why all the big banks don't move out of the city. Not like they need to walk over to the stock exchange anymore or need any sort of physical office here.

    Then I was told that the people at the top being downtown is easier to meet to discuss things you don't do over any traceable form.

    You don't think everyone having the same interest rates is by accident do you?

    When Timmy's moved to Toronto back in 2000, it started killing Coffee Time. There are still some Coffee Time stores here and there owned by independent franchisees, and they have much better Coffee and Tea than Timmys. Problem is there aren't many CT stores out there.

    Plenty of Coffee Times in the 905 and 705 area codes. But they are really unclean stores, dangerously so. Country Style locations are 1000x better, and the coffee is better too. Not many of those left.

    A lot of development/IT departments for the Big Banks are in the 'Burbs: There is a huge cluster of TD towers at Dixie/Eglinton in Mississauga, and several RBC towers at Erin Mills Pkwy & 401.

    Yes, not sure why CT appear so dirty. Think, they just don't want to invest money to improve the place. And forget about ever using the bathrooms, that's even worst! LOL.

    ***Starbucks, hands down has the nicest appearance and the bathrooms are the cleanest of any establishment i've seen****:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:
