The Toronto based chain, often known as Tim’s or Timmies, has been named as the operator of a drive-thru and diner planned for a site at the former Toys R Us store car park, in Bourges Boulevard.
The proposed unit will provide 279 square metres of floor space and will include a 37 space car park.
US burger chain Wendy’s and America-based Taco Bell have been named as the occupants of two drive-thrus on a new business park that has just secured planning approval at Maskew Avenue.
While Tim Hortons has refused to comment on any move to Peterborough, it has been named in a planning application submitted to Peterborough City Council to put up 18 illuminated signs, including an advertising totem, for a coffee drive-thru and restaurant on the Bourges Boulevard site.
The application outlines plans to use an area of the existing car park for the coffee shop drive-thru and restaurant.
The site is part of the Home Bargains and Food Warehouse car park with a McDonalds drive-thru and other industrial buildings nearby.
The proposed development will be served from the existing junction access on the A15
Construction of the Tim Hortons drive-thru would meana loss of 36 spaces from the existing car park with about 202 parking spaces remaining.
A spokesperson for Tim Hortons said: “At this time we are unable to comment about the site in Peterborough.”
