Coffee and doughnut chain Tim Hortons reached 2 million fans on Facebook earlier this week, and company thanked fans with an impromptu musical performance in one Tim Hortons restaurant.
Tim Hortons has the largest Canadian fan base of any brand page on Facebook, according to a company news release. Tim Hortons also maintains a separate brand page for its American fans. That page has nearly 77,000 fans.
"This is a milestone for Tim Hortons, and we are very thankful to our Facebook fans for their ongoing support," said Bill Moir, chief brand and marketing officer for Tim Hortons. "The page is an invaluable resource for us to be able to listen to and engage directly with our guests and learn about what's important to them. Our fans are very engaged, sharing their experiences with Tim Hortons on a daily basis, no matter where they are in Canada and around the world."
The very first Tim Hortons opened in 1964 in Hamilton, Ontario -- just a short drive from Buffalo.
