Do you think Tim Hortons should open in Hong Kong?

Tim Hortons should open in Hong Kong. There are several positive signs that indicate that it would be a good move for the company. The local market is open to the establishment of new coffee chains, and it would allow them to compete with Starbucks before they expand too much there. Also, the company already has knowledge of the local business landscape as their parent company, Burger King, already is established there.

It appears as if the Chinese market would be a good one to break into. Indeed, within the next several years, the company is planning to open 1,500 locations within China. Whether this will include Hong Kong is unclear.
