Restaurant Chain is Picking Up the Tab for Unsuspecting Customers Across its
U.S. Markets with Random Cups of Kindness

DUBLIN, OH, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop is paying
it forward in celebration of National Random Acts of Kindness Week by picking
up the bill for unknowing guests at the drive-thru.

This is the third year Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop has held its Random Cups
of Kindness event. In 2012, the restaurant chain treated approximately 5,500
guests to a free order. This year, it plans on treating even more customers in
approximately 300 restaurants.

Doing good at the drive-thru isn't a new concept to the bakery cafe chain.
Restaurant owners, managers and team members regularly witness customers
paying for a stranger's order—especially during the morning rush when
drive-thru lines can get particularly long.

"Our guests' generosity to one another continues to amaze and inspire us,"
said Mike Meilleur, executive vice president, Tim Hortons U.S. "What started
out as just a few instances of guests paying it forward here and there has now
become a bit of a fun Tim Hortons tradition."

A customer who receives their order for free will be given a coffee card good
for one, free medium size coffee to pass along to someone else to continue
spreading kindness.

Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop's Random Cups of Kindness event kicks off in all
U.S. markets at select restaurants on Monday, February 11. The program ends
Sunday, February 17.

National Random Acts of Kindness Week is celebrated February 11-17 and was
founded by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation.
