Tim Hortons Canada Is “Slightly” Raising the Prices on Some Breakfast Sandwiches


It started with their hot beverages getting a price hike this past August, and it now appears that your favourite Tim Hortons Canada breakfast sandwiches may also be witnessing a “slight” price increase in the next few weeks, as CBC reports.

According to the reports gathered by the CBC, Tim Hortons will raising the prices on some breakfast sandwiches by 20 cents.

When Tim Hortons was asked by the news outlet about which exact products would be seeing this unpleasant price hike and what locations would be receiving this update, they could not confirm. The only information that they could offer up was that the raised prices was not related to the minimum wage increase.

This price surge has come after some franchise owners in Ontario decided to cut the benefits of their employees in order to balance the hit they’ll take from Ontario increasing their minimum wage from $11.60 an hour to $14.

“Regular adjustments to menu prices are a normal part of the restaurant business,” said a Tim Hortons spokesperson in an email to CBC News. “Many factors are considered when determining the final price of each menu offering and prices may vary by region.”

Most of the locations that the CBC found reports of the price increase taking place were in Ontario, and after asking an employee of a Tim Hortons in Ontario about the company’s policy on raising prices he confirmed that they usually take place across a large region, such as the entire province.

One customer interviewed for the CBC report found that their go-to breakfast, a bagel sandwich breakfast meal, has increased in price from $6.77 to $7.

    So was cutting paid breaks, benefits, and perks to employees not enough? Tim Hortons is clearly going to be using the new min. wage as an excuse to increase their prices… Bad PR move… Greedy Timmies. Second Cup is now my go to.

    To me they don’t have much options. 30% Wage hike is going to cause this fire in the market. Grocery, Coffee everything will be expensive… Bad move by Liberals…

    J: how about not paying the C-level execs of the company thousands of dollars per hour? Maybe we could start there first? Seems logical to most people.

    Sorry – I dont do Tims no more. I get my coffee from my corner coffee place at double the price. At least they are Canadian.

    You are missing the big picture. Don’t blame the individual franchisees, their profit has gone down yet the parent company Restaurants Brands the multinational food corporation that took them over, their profit is going up, as they are charging franchisees more and more for supplies.

    Prices rise every year in food, gas, clothing, personal care items, etc. regardless of any minimum wage increases. I agree that these big businesses make enough money and should eat the cost instead of punishing customers and employees, however many of us not making much more than minimum wage cannot afford to eat at Timmies. So those of you who can afford to eat out should quit whining and cough up the extra dough. First world problems…..
