The Shanghai Tim Hortons is the first in China under an exclusive master franchise joint agreement signed last year with the Cartesian Capital Group.

The new location will serve many of the chain’s traditional offerings as well as some new food and drink options unique to the Chinese market.

In addition to different tea flavours and new hot espresso drinks, Tim Hortons will offer a new salted egg yolk timbit.
