Canada's Tim Hortons, one of the largest restaurant chains in North America, is heading to Pakistan this year with plans to open dozens of outlets across the country, the company announced on social media.

“As we continue to grow Tim Hortons around the world: Tims is opening in Pakistan this year,” the company posted on its official LinkedIn account.

Tim Hortons, known for its coffee and doughnuts, said it is planning to open dozens of new restaurants across Pakistan in the coming years starting with its first in Lahore later this year.

The development is vital for a country that has struggled to attract foreign direct investment (FDI), as it only managed to grab $1.285 billion in the first nine months of this fiscal, reflecting a year-on-year decline of 2%.

Back in March, Tim Hortons announced that it will launch in India later this year as part of an exclusive agreement with a joint venture entity owned by Apparel Group and Gateway Partners.

“The first restaurant is set to open in New Delhi and there are plans to launch over 300 locations across the country over the next 10 years,” said the company.

Tim Hortons currently has over 5,100 restaurants across 13 countries, including in the United States, Mexico, Spain, the United Kingdom, across the Middle East, China, Thailand and the Philippines.

On August 26, 2014, Burger King agreed to purchase Tim Hortons for $11.4 billion. The two chains became subsidiaries of the Canadian-American holding company Restaurant Brands International, which is majority-owned by Brazilian investment firm 3G Capital, on December 15, 2014.

We certainly don't need them. Our present conditions don't allow such luxury.

This is Pakistan, where personal gain is preferred over common interest. People are more interest to invest in foreign franchise instead of endeavoring project themselves. This will save forex as well result in promotion of local industry and work-force, alas.

@Syed Arif Hussain Zahidi, please be pro Pakistani. Foreign investment should always be appreciated as this increase your visibility across the world, obviously incoming chains knew that there survival is directly linked with the cost competitiveness. This will help to increase the standard of local competitors and will also create the employment opportunities as we ate witnessing in other foreign chains. TIM HORTONS welcome to Pakistan. We are eagerly waiting ✋
