On a day when most folks are involved in trick-or-treating, Redeemer students, in between morning classes, gathered to munch on a Canadian staple: Timbits. Surrounded by large platters of the miniature doughnuts, Dr. Krygsman announced that a new Tim Hortons franchise will be constructed on campus, replacing the current William’s Fresh Cafe.
The same products and promotions that Canadians know and love—doughnuts, coffee, iced cappuccinos, a full breakfast menu and even the Roll up the Rim to Win contest—will be available.
William’s, which has been operating on campus for the last decade, will be closing in mid-November. In its place, a new storefront will be built over the following six to eight weeks.
The new Tim Hortons coffee shop will be an institutionally owned and operated franchise, in partnership with Redeemer’s current food-service partner, Sodexo Canada.
Tim Hortons fare will be integrated into the student meal plan and the RUC Express cards of students, faculty and staff. The campus coffee shop, like its predecessor, will also provide ample opportunity for student employment.
In the meantime, we apologize for any inconvenience the renovation will cause. During the renovation period, ReFresh—our cafeteria vendor—will offer coffee, smoothies and a variety of other William’s items.
