Restaurant Opportunities



1 in 6 children across Canada and the United States live in economically disadvantaged homes1. For these children, opportunities and environments that promote their growth into healthy individuals are often limited.

A Foundation camp experience provides programs to help these children develop lifelong skills. When they return home, they bring with them a positive attitude about their future, and the confidence to achieve goals they learned to set for themselves.


Founded by Tim Hortons, Co-Founder Ron Joyce, the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation was established in 1974 to honour Tim Horton’s love for children, and his desire to help those less fortunate. Our programs are designed to change the way young people from economically disadvantaged homes think about themselves and the opportunities that exist for them.

    Tim Horton's is actually a company you can be proud of. They respect their workers, at least at the one where I was. It was like any other job, nothing special, but the people there made it kind of cool to be there, and the food and drinks were cheap. I miss the area too, I loved being around the Wayne State kids.


    Though my managers were nice, they were barely ever there and getting ahold of them was always a huge feat for everyone. Even as a supervisor there are still only certain decisions you can make and you don't want to make the wrong one and end up with an emergency or make a mistake so dire that the company loses money.

    Advice to Management

    Be there more often, you cannot run a startup business from home, even a franchise.
    Make sure that there is ALWAYS a way that your employees can get ahold of you.
