Northern Ireland man's 14-hour wait at new Belfast Tim Hortons lands year's supply of coffee

A Northern Ireland man was rewarded with a year's supply of free coffee after he waited for over 14 hours to be the first person through the new Tim Hortons drive-through at Connswater Shopping Centre.

Dedicated Michael Kane from Dundonald was rewarded for the long wait with a year’s supply of free Tim Hortons coffee - two cups a day for a whole year.

The first 50 people through both the restaurant and drive-through were given free lunches following the official opening at 12pm on Wednesday, December 12.

Hundreds lined up for the opening of the chain's first drive restaurant in Northern Ireland.

“We are thrilled to see such a great response to the opening of our first drive through restaurant in Belfast, Northern Ireland at Connswater retail park," said Kevin Hydes, chief finance and commercial officer of the UK Tim Hortons franchise.

"This is our second restaurant in Belfast and it is great to see so many people enjoying our famous brewed coffee, delicious baked goods and freshly-prepared food. We look forward to welcoming the local community to our restaurant.”
