Not so much in the U.S. ... I was actually kind of surprised that incident happened in Canada ... I use to have my kids play hockey/soccer/baseball over in Ontario because the culture of sportsmanship among the coaches, parents, fans & players was a little better ... plus, Canada had 'Tim Hortons' and the U.S. didn't at the time so that was a big bonus, .

"Timmy's", as it is affectionally known in my household & throughout the provinces, is to Canada what McDonald's is to the U.S. and more, they're everywhere ... I've been to towns that have been nothing but an intersection with a post office, ice rink & Tim Horton's ... some places didn't even have the post office or the ice rink, but they always had a Timmy's ... the French love their pastry.

Besides good sandwiches, soups, chili, coffee & donuts, Tim Horton's also sponsors youth hockey in Canada ... all the Canadian greats started out playing 'Timbits' minor hockey, even Sidney Crosby was a 'Timbit' at one time ... they're in every rink of every town in Canada ...

... you also have to know a little bit about Tim Horton himself ... played defense for Toronto & won a few Cups ... he was a legend before he went into the donut & coffee business.

So you see, that is the appeal of Tim Horton's ... it's not just 'fast-food', it's an institution, part of the culture, a respected member of each and every community ... you can walk into any Canadian ice rink today and I guarantee 95% of the patronage in there is going to be holding a Tim Horton's cup, and the other 5% is either thinking about it or they've just thrown one away ... no kidding.

... it must be a regional thing because Dunkin' Donuts pretty much closed up shop in SE Michigan once Tim Horton's started coming around ... there's one, maybe two, I can think of still in operation ... not that I wouldn't patronize Dunkin' Donuts, just the main attraction for me with Timmy's was they had soups & sandwiches whereas Dunkin' Donuts did not and I was always over in Ontario anyway. I have noticed DD revamping their menu the past few years to compete. They should do a reality show on 'Donut Wars', .

... well, I pitched good product, service to the community and the undying loyalty of millions of Canadian consumers to the brand, if that doesn't get you on board, IDK what else to say other then try it for yourself, , you won't be disappointed.
