Opens up potential sponsorship to the rest of their portfolio. Good thing

I don't think they will change what works and why they managed to established themselves in this action drink "niche". There should be benefits on the cost to produce, and indeed that may open up a bit their portfolio.

I would be really interested to see their portfolio for instance with Michael Leib's Canvas concept.

Well Burger King has ruined everything they’ve put their hands on so this might be the same

I don't drink "Pop" or any energy drink... poison.

Well...maybe a splash in a cocktail...but that's about it.

Excuse me but as a Canadian I must interject and say that Tim's quality has gone to shit since BK bought them.

I’m wondering if Wendy’s is part of that group too? In my area allot of the Tim Hortons share a building with a Wendy’s.

Not Tim Hortons. Major problems there.

Cool story bro, do you spend much of you time staggering around answering questions nobody asks?

From my understanding they were saying the acquisition was a move to boost caffeine quantities in the current Pepsi line. They were distributing and warehousing Rockstar and their contract restricted caffeine increases in Pepsi.

Wendy's bought them first, I think Tim's has changed hands a few times now. They haven't been Canadian for decades (no any good for that matter).

The day they stopped making donuts fresh on site was the day they became dead to me. Their coffee sucks too. It's just got a higher caffeine content, so people flock there to get a fix.

Empty a bag of skittles into the toilet and then flush. It's like watching a five second long nascar race.

Probably. It’s not like BK and Popeyes are any good

Its sad when the Country Style pour your own coffee at the gas station is better than what you get at Tim's. They even buy donuts and fritters from a local bakery every morning, its my stop now instead of waiting in the Tim`s drive thru, its cheaper too!

That Joe Rogan thing over in non-moto says 45% of Americans over the age of 45 are obese. Sounds like good marketing to keep the audience plump.

It's just the way many of the current generation portray their "toughness"....from behind the safety of a keyboard, without the fear of consequences.

Labels are used by the ignorant. ...but if I were to label myself, I'm Gen X.
