To be honest, I didn't know what a 'Tim Hortons' was until a couple years ago when I was listening to a true crime podcast and the hosts kept referring to Tim Hortons like it was a person's house, lol. It took me a bit to realize Tim Hortons was a coffee shop.

Of course, as a Starbucks lover, my curiosity was piqued because there was no Tim Hortons here in South Jersey. I eventually did see there are a few in North Jersey, in and around Philadelphia, and in Delaware, but I still haven't ventured to one.

It looks like, soon, I won't have to go far to have my first Tim Hortons experience. One is currently being built in Stratford, Camden County, reports 42freeway.com.

The Tim Hortons, known for their coffee and donuts, will be located on the White Horse Pike at New Road, right between the CVS and TD Bank and within walking distance to the Lindenwold PATCO train station.

It's probably going to do really well just from it's proximity to the railway. I've already got my eye on trying one of their breakfast sandwiches.

According to 42freeway.com, Tim Hortons gets it name from a Toronto Maple Leafs hockey player who started the chain in 1964. Canadians call Tim Hortons 'Timmies'.

We'll follow up as soon as we know when this first South Jersey 'Timmies' is set to open.
