I respect those of you who choose the local businesses over a chain - always the best choice in my opinion; regardless of whether the coffee at Timmy's is good or not. My local coffee is now from my kitchen, but I do miss Tim Horton's from when I lived in Canada.

I get and XL 2 C 1 S
I only a couple times a week though. But I do buy their cans of take home coffee and have that everyday.
Also get chicken salad with no tomato. However, there is a 50% chance there will be tomato on it.
I used to work at one for about 2 years which was an interesting experience. For a while after I couldn't eat the food. But I'm alright now.

I'm a fan of supporting local businesses too, but tims are all franchised by local owners, most of whom work in the locations themselves. I know it doesn't seem like it though. It is nice to go into a one of place too once in a while.

I've said before I'm not a big fan, but the maple pecan danish at the local Tims are pretty good. But they are very tiny for the price.

I can go into a local deli and get a tasty and delectable danish of my choice that's three times the size for the same price.

Favourite drink has to be the peach juice (I don't drink coffee)
Favourite doughnut is assorted timbits! (but the best ones are glazed cream cheese)
How many in a day - maybe once or twice a month? I'm still angry they raised timbit prices
How many in a 5km radius? well there's 6 in a 2km radius so I'm guessing way more in a 5km radius.

I'm in a relatively new suburb, and sadly I have to drive about 8km to get to the closest tims.
