Tim Hortons Celebrates Veteran's Day

In an effort to thank all U.S. military veterans for their service and dedication to their country, Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop is offering them a free treat on Veterans Day, November 11.

Every inactive and active U.S. military veteran who stops by an area Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop will receive a free Star Spangled Vanilla Dip donut adorned with star-shaped sprinkles. No purchase is necessary, veterans need to either be in uniform or show their military ID.

"Tim Hortons has always believed in supporting our veterans and active troops—they are some of our most important guests," says Mike Meilleur, senior vice president of U.S. operations.

"I know our team members are proud to serve those who have protected their freedom."

Tim Hortons operates five restaurants on four U.S. military bases, including Naval Air Stations Norfolk and Oceana, Fort Knox and two locations at Aberdeen Proving Grounds.

This is the third year the coffee and baked goods chain has given away free donuts to all U.S. military veterans. The promotion will last all day on Veterans Day or until supplies last.

As of July 3rd, 2011, Tim Hortons had 622 restaurants in the United States and 3,811 restaurants systemwide.
