OAKVILLE, ON, Dec. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Between shoveling snow, bundling up the
kids and fighting traffic on cold-weather commutes, it can be tough to make
time for breakfast on winter mornings. Tim Hortons is helping Canadians get
their mornings off to a smoother start with the new Turkey Sausage Breakfast
Sandwich, a satisfying, lean protein breakfast option under 350 calories.
"Tim Hortons served more than 208 million breakfast sandwiches last year
alone. With nearly two-thirds of people who buy breakfast at a restaurant
choosing to start their day with Tim Hortons, we are committed to offering our
guests a variety of menu options," says Julie Unsworth, Director Marketing,
Food, Tim Hortons Canada. "Our guests love the taste of the Pork Sausage
Breakfast Sandwich and now we have a lower calorie, lower fat option with our
new Turkey Sausage Breakfast Sandwich*. The sandwich offers guests an
alternative breakfast option that doesn't compromise taste, and is the perfect
companion to Canada's Favourite Coffee."
