Cardiff has been announced as one of the three cities in the UK to be in the second wave of Tim Hortons nationwide rollout plan.
With a second restaurant already underway in Glasgow, the Canadian coffee chain will be opening in Manchester, Cardiff and Belfast over the coming months.
The openings represent the second phase of an extensive, nationwide rollout plan.
The Cardiff site will be on Queens Arcade, and will open before the end of the year.
Tim Hortons is taking a new 10 year lease for a 2,500 sq ft unit at the main entrance to the shopping centre.
The expansion is expected to bring more job opportunities to each city. The new locations are currently recruiting for team members at all levels, including manager and assistant manager.
Commenting, Alex Wagstaff of Addington Capital said, “We are delighted to welcome the brand to the Queens Arcade Shopping Centre and pleased that it has chosen Cardiff as its first shop in Wales.
“Tim Hortons is a big brand in Canada and the US and its arrival will be a real attraction for our customers.”
