Tim Hortons may be bought by Burger King

A joint statement by the companies says they hope to form a new corporation that would be based in Canada β€” but they would continue to operate as standalone brands.

Tim Hortons headquarters are in Oakville, Ontario.

‘This means Tim Hortons is going to go full bore with a huge expansion into the U.S.’

If a merger is completed, the new company would become the world’s third-largest quick-service restaurant chain, with more than 18,000 locations and sales of about $22 billion.
