There are only a couple left in New York - most closed within 6 months.

And as you say - you didnt know it was Canadian. With excuses to our friends in Maine, Ohio, and Michigan where Timmy's is popular, that was my point And Nathaliia next time you're here in NYC I'll take you for a double double!

People associate McDonalds with the US - Tim Hortons is even more important to Canada than McDonalds to the US (or Dunkin for that matter) and yet its not a national symbol except to Canadians and expat Canadians like myself.

I'm serious by the way about calling this the Double Double Tards Thread
