My Dad sends me newspaper clippings from the newspapers back 'home' that he thinks I would like. This one arrived yesterday - it was from the Kingston Whig-Standard, Wednesday, October 14, p 11:

Tim Hortons cracks Fort Knox

by Don Peat, Sun Media

TORONTO - Canucks have long known Tim Hortons' coffee is as good as gold.

Now the US army has one of the Canadian coffee giant's franchises secured inside the famed fort that guards America's gold bullion.

The iconic donut chain announced yesterday it has opened a restaurant at Fort Knox. It's the first Tim Hortons inside a U.S. military base and another step in the company's push south of the border.

American civilians have already have a taste of Tim Hortons with 500 locations across the US.

Open 24 hours a day, the newest Tims in Kentucky will serve the 30,000 soldiers, relatives and civilians who live and work on the base That should be a recipe for success because the new restaurant, which has a grand opening tomorrow, has a larger surrounding population than some Canadian towns that support their own Tim Hortons.

Company spokesman David Morelli said the soldiers wanted their double doubles and Timbits after sampling them at locations like the Tim Hortons in Kandahar, Afghanistan.

"We're lucky we have a lot of fans who have experienced Tim Hortons and were training in Fort Knox or who had been overseas . . . and had a taste of home at the store in Kandahar" Morelli said.

The menu will be the same as it is at every other Tim Hortons.

"No 'golden' donuts, unfortunately," Morelli said, adding the cofffee will likely be in high demand shortly after reveille.

Seven Canadian military bases already have a Tim Hortons location including CFB Trenton, Borden, Kingston and Petawawa.

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Kathryn41- Thanks for sharing the article here on VJ...Lol..Tim Hortons is certainly worth its weight in gold now! Maybe it's because they want something "foreign Canadian expensive exotic foods" to eat, instead of other US-franchise donut chains? Would that drive up the Tim Hortons food prices here in the USA....lol...Yum! Hmmm...I wonder what would happen if Canada planned a surprise attack on the USA through Fort Knox?..Oh I can see it now, a timbit war down at the knox!... :P:lol:

Either way, good for Canadians and good for Americans...Tim Hortons here they come to the USA!
