Lahoris and Tim Hortons Pakistan made history by setting a new global record for the highest opening day sales in the brand’s history since 1964. With over 5,352 restaurants across 15 countries, Tim Hortons has established itself as a household name and a go-to destination for coffee and baked goods. This latest achievement is a testament to the growing popularity of Tim Hortons and the love that Pakistan has for the brand. So let’s raise a cup of coffee and give a round of applause to Tim Hortons Pakistan for this incredible accomplishment.
The enthusiasm our public is showing for Tim Hortons speaks volumes about our character as a nation. Pakistani obsession with brands: people queuing outside Tim Hortons is not a new phenomenon. I am old enough to witness the same kind of crazy gatherings for KFC, McDonald’s, and other similar chains when opened their first branches. Tim Hortons in Lahore should have charged in US dollars during its opening week. This would have surprised the State Bank of Pakistan and affected the country’s reserves of US dollars.
At the same time, it’s important to remember that people have different interests and priorities, and what may seem frivolous to some may bring joy to others. Queuing up for Tim Hortons in Pakistan should not be a source of embarrassment for those who enjoy it. Similar lines can be seen abroad when a new iPhone is released or when popular video games like Call of Duty or the PS5 are restocked. People should be allowed to have fun in their own way and not be judged for it, regardless of whether others believe it is affordable or has value. It is not up to others to decide what brings happiness to someone else.
Everyone has their own taste preferences and opinions. While Tim Hortons may not be to your liking, others may enjoy its menu and atmosphere. It’s important to remember that personal preferences can vary, and what may not be appealing to one person may be enjoyable to another. Tim Hortons has been a popular chain for many years and has a loyal customer base, so it’s clear that many people do enjoy what it has to offer. Whether it is similar or different to Starbucks is subjective, but it is well-regarded by many people who appreciate its menu and atmosphere.
However, if Tim Hortons in Pakistan has indeed broken the record for the highest opening day sales in the brand’s 61-year history, it would be a significant achievement and a testament to the popularity and success of the chain in the country. It’s important to verify such information through official sources before making any claims or conclusions.

It’s true that Pakistan, like many other countries, faces challenges with social inequality. There is a large portion of the population that struggles with poverty and simply trying to survive, while the middle class works hard to pursue their dreams. The upper middle class may attend events like the launch of Tim Hortons, while the elite class often treats Pakistan as a vacation home and holds significant power and influence in the country. This can result in a significant gap between the rich and the poor, and it’s important for society to work towards addressing these inequalities and creating a more equal and just society for all.
The opening of Tim Hortons in Pakistan may have brought attention to the issue of economic inequality in the country, but it is unlikely to have revealed it to adults who were still unaware of it. Economic inequality is a well-documented issue in many parts of the world, including Pakistan, and it is unlikely that the opening of a single chain restaurant would be the primary source of information on this subject for adults. While the presence of Tim Hortons and other luxury brands may highlight the economic divide in the country, it is important to note that economic inequality is a complex and multifaceted issue that requires a deeper understanding and analysis.
