Canadian cafe brand Tim Hortons has opened its first restaurant in China.

The new venue, located at People’s Square in central Shanghai, is the first Tim Hortons in China since the company signed an exclusive master-franchise agreement with Cartesian Capital Group last year.

New beverages include Canadian-inspired flavours, like a Maple Macchiato. (CNW Group/Tim Hortons)

“We’re excited to bring the iconic Tim Hortons brand and a piece of Canada around the globe,” said Tim Hortons president Alex Macedo. “China is an attractive growth market and we can’t wait for guests to try our classic favourites and some new offerings crafted specifically to the Chinese market.”
