The Tim's in my area (all opened in recent years) seem to be doing well. They're actually building one quite close to me, next to an Irving/Circle K that does a ton of business, right off of the intersection of I-95 and I-395. I will, no doubt, be visiting them frequently...I'm not a huge coffee drinker but I think Timbits are amazing...and their soups and sandwiches are quite good as well. I was psyched when they started opening locations around here, as previously I was really only able to partake of their tasty offerings while visiting Canada.

Oh, they're fantastic (in my opinion at least) -- should you encounter one again, I'd highly recommend checking it out.

We visited our first Tim Horton's last year and were blown away!!  I would love to have them here, but the South is pretty slow to try anything new.  

The good news is that TN is finally getting Dunkin Donuts back after a 15 year absence and the one near me is great!

Chris, congrats on the Papa Gino's medal.  My ex-son-in-law loved them and says that no other pizza chain can match their flavor and crust texture.  (He should know since he just about lives on pizza.)

:yup:

The Taftville section of Norwich Tim Horton's is now closed.  Not sure how long it has been, but by the looks of things a couple years now.  This was a former Bess Eaton location.

However, a completely rebuilt Tim Horton's open 24 hours on the other side of Norwich seems to be thriving.

NO DD?!! I experience that a lot when I travel, I'll ask where a DD is and they respond with 1 or 2 towns away?!!

I've NEVER seen a Tim Hortons in my life and I lived in RI for 12 years... in my area of lil' rhody dunkie's are on every corner and all the employees were amazing to us and had great coffee :) as long as you aren't jerks to them and you go on a regular basis a bond even forms, they know everyone in my family's coffee by name. To be honest... the taste of the coffee all comes from what you put in it (as long as its not burnt, and you grow to learn what times of the day the coffee wont be at its freshest) and D&D lets you change it a little... for example my weapon of choice is a medium decaf with extra extra cream and 4 sugars melted.

I haven't eaten TH since 2006, when there was one just around the corner from our hotel in Toronto.  They have tons of these in other parts of Ohio, especially near the WVA border, but none in our area.

If Krispy Kreme and Tim Horton's failed, what makes you think Honey Dew will fare any better?

In Maine only Westbrook and Windham closed.  Corporate wasted little time stripping the properties of signage and other indicators that they were Tim's locations.  Gotta hand it to them for protecting their brand image.  As my gallery images indicate, the closed locations still have SOME telltale signs of being former Tim Hortons if you get up close...

"Westbrook Tim Hortons  front exterior" "Westbrook Tim Hortons entrance sign" "Westbrook Tim Hortons street sign" "Westbrook Tim Hortons street sign 2" "Windham Tim Hortons  rear exterior" "Windham Tim Hortons Door Sign" "Windham Tim Hortons Front" "Windham Tim Hortons Street Sign" "Windham Tim Hortons angle view drive thru" "Windham Tim Hortons drive-thru window"

Time for Honey Dew stores to come into CT!

There was a Honey Dew in Sanford, ME that opened in 1999 but it closed the following year due to fraud on the part of the bank that financed its construction.  I wonder if they would give it another try?

I just don't understand what is so great about Dunkin Donuts.  They almost depend 100% on satellite bakeries to deliver to their stores, so if you go buy a bagel there at 8pm it's almost 24 hours old.  That, right there just turns me away.  I want to eat somewhere that at least makes their own products on premise, and keeps a more "fresh food" atmosphere.

Here are a few pix of the Tim Hortons/Cold Stone Creamery at Westgate Shopping Center in Portland, ME.  This is a conversion of an long-abandoned former Friendly's.

The Westgate location (ex-Friendly's) that I posted pix of is one of them...
http://www.pressherald.com/news/Tim_Horton_s_closes_six_stores_in_Maine_.html

Another one of them was the Tims/Cold Stone at the dying Promenade Mall in Lewiston. They wasted no time removing the signage. The Flagship Cinema is on its last legs there, too; they yanked the 3D gear from it last year. The powers that be are focused on downtown and are ignoring the rot elsewhere in the city.

What happened to the Tim Horton's locations (former Bess Eaton's) in Connecticut. There used to be one in Vernon, IIRC.
