NIPISSING FIRST NATION — At a ground-breaking ceremony surrounded by supporters, Lorie and Brian Young announced the first Tim Hortons will be built on Nipissing First Nation territory before the snow flies.
On May 10, standing at the future build site just behind the Wolves Den on Hwy 17 W at Beaucage Park Road, Lorie enthusiastically describes the plans for the land, creating an estimated 35 jobs.
“As you can see on the poster, the building is a commercial duplex housing the Tim Hortons and the Wolves Den Gas Bar. At the far back here, we are going to have some parking for transport trucks with gassing stations for them. We are going to have eight units of pumps for personal vehicles, able to service 16 vehicles at a time. We are going to make sure we have full service and self-service.”
Lorie talked of being born and raised on the Dokis First Nation is now a very proud member of Nipissing First Nation. She has had the dream of opening a Tim Hortons since 2003.
