Tim Horton's suddenly popping up in NYC. Decent food, well priced, good looking interior. I like the place and I like where it's going.
Currently, Tim Hortons even trades at a cheapish P/E of 12. That represents a clear discount to competitors such as McDonald's (17), Panera (30), and Starbucks (25).
Good coffee, freshly baked goods, cheap prices ... healthier option to McDonalds or Wendy's on the go. Great hangout/meet up place. It's EVERYWHERE in Canada. Could have a similarly dense presence in the North Eastern U.S. over the next decade.
