Canada’s iconic coffeehouse and restaurant chain, Tim Hortons, is set to make its debut in the capital city, Islamabad, marking its fifth outlet in Pakistan. The new branch will be situated in the vibrant DHA (Defense Housing Authority) Phase-II ‘Central Park,’ making it the first Tim Hortons establishment outside Punjab’s capital, Lahore. Currently, Tim Hortons operates four successful branches in Lahore and has ambitious plans to extend its presence to various cities across Pakistan.

The strategic choice of DHA Phase-II ‘Central Park’ for the new outlet places Tim Hortons among the many international food chains adorning this bustling locale, known as one of the largest roundabouts in Asia. The coffeehouse is poised to join the ranks of esteemed brands already present in Central Park.
While an official launch date is yet to be announced, a behind-the-scenes video suggests that the grand opening is imminent, with anticipation building among coffee enthusiasts in Islamabad.
Tim Hortons made a monumental splash in Lahore when it first arrived, breaking records for single-day sales in the brand’s 61-year history. On the inaugural day, more than 13,000 patrons flocked to Tim Hortons from its 7:30 AM opening until the government-mandated closure at 11:00 PM.
The overwhelming response from Lahoris reflected the city’s enthusiasm for Tim Hortons’ renowned offerings, despite the closure leading to lingering queues even after 11 PM. The brand’s success in Lahore has undoubtedly set the stage for a warm welcome in Islamabad, and expectations are high for a similar reception in the new locale.
As Tim Hortons continues its expansion across Pakistan, the forthcoming Islamabad outlet is poised to become a popular destination for coffee lovers and food enthusiasts alike.
