The 500th store is located in Dongguan, a city of over 10 million people on the Pearl River delta, less than 50 miles from Hong Kong. This latest opening underscores Tims China’s acceleration into new cities across China.

Tims China’s first store in Dongguan captures the signature warmth of the brand as well as locally relevant nuances, reflecting the southern location and local style, and offers a relaxing environment for guests seeking comfort and refreshment. To celebrate the opening of its 500th coffee shop, Tims China is offering buy-one-get-one (BOGO) sales in all of its stores from October 12 to October 18.
