Corporatist Outrage! God Save Our Tims!

A group of Tim Hortons franchisees have launched a $500-million class-action lawsuit against the parent company for mismanagement of the brand, accusing the chain's owners of making it harder for them to stay in business.

The group of franchisees, who call themselves the Great White North Franchisee Association, say that ever since the firm Restaurant Brands bought the iconic coffee and doughnut chain and merged it with Burger King in 2014 their costs have increased, but the new owners haven't allowed them to raise prices to recoup those costs.

They went public with their complaints earlier this year, but after working with management behind the scenes to try to address their concerns, they launched the class-action lawsuit on Monday, seeking $500 million in damages.

"Since its acquisition," the statement of claim reads, "[Restaurant Brands] has used various strategies to extract more money out of the Tim Hortons franchise system at the expense of franchisees."  (more...)

You can take Gavin McGuiness from us (please). You can take Rick Warren promoting LifesiteNews, but never, never adulterate Tims. We will:

  1. Deluge you with Canadian culture
  2. Send an army of obnoxious Ukrainian women  (stop staring, there's worse) to screech outside your headquarters.

We will stop at nothing. Better Red Than Tim-less!
