OAKVILLE, ON, May 15, 2014 /CNW/ - Kicking off its 50th birthday weekend, Tim 
Hortons will turn the clock back on Toronto's Yonge-Dundas Square, 
transforming the bustling corner into a scene from the 1960s with a replica of 
Tim Hortons first restaurant from 1964. 
"Since our first restaurant opened its doors May 17, 1964, Tim Hortons has 
become an essential part of Canadians' lives," said Marc Caira, President & 
CEO, Tim Hortons Inc. "We are thanking our loyal guests for making Tim Hortons 
Canada's favourite coffee by taking them back in time to the very beginning 
and recreating our first restaurant." 
Guests are invited to Yonge-Dundas Square from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. to relax and 
wander through the replica 1960s neighbourhood and enjoy a free coffee and 
donut served by staff in vintage uniforms. Canadian jazz-pop singer, Nikki 
Yanofsky, will perform Motown music to help set the '60s scene, as well as 
songs from her new album at 12:30 p.m. 
In addition to its celebration in Toronto, today, Tim Hortons announces its 
much anticipated #TimsBringItBack winner: The Eclair. After receiving 40% of 
Canadians votes since May 1, the Eclair, a staple when Tim Hortons opened its 
doors in the '60s, beat out beloved menu items from decades past including: 
The Sugar Twist from the groovy '70s, The Pecan Butter Tart from the tubular 
'80s, The Chocolate Sour Cream Glazed Donut from the boy band-loving '90s, and 
the Bread Bowl from Y2K. The Eclair will be brought back in restaurant for a 
limited time later this year, and all items will be showcased within the 1964 
pop-up restaurant. 
"With over 200,000 votes counted as part of our Bring It Back campaign, and 
thousands of comments on social media, we couldn't be more excited to be 
giving back to our loyal guests, by reintroducing for a limited time The 
Eclair in restaurant later this year," said Caira. "Thank you to our loyal 
guests for taking a trip back in time to see how our menu has evolved over the 
past 50 years, and for sharing how Tim Hortons has been a part of Canadians' 
lives since 1964." 
Tim Hortons' celebrations will continue on its birthday, May 17, in restaurant 
with a free Birthday Cake Donut offer at participating restaurants across the 
country. Guests can also look forward to the release of a commemorative online 
video, which will capture the hearts of Tim Hortons fans who have grown up 
drinking Canada's favourite coffee. 
Guests are encouraged to share how they are celebrating Tim Hortons' 50th 
birthday online through Tim Hortons' Facebook (www.Facebook.com/TimHortons), 
Twitter (@TimHortons and Instagram @TimHortons) pages using #Tims50th.
