St. John's restaurant team wins chain-wide competition for fastest and
OAKVILLE, ON, Nov. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - A team from a St. John's Tim Hortons
restaurant has been recognized as the best among the chain's nearly
100,000 employees in a chain-wide competition to identify the fastest
and friendliest teams who deliver the best customer service.
The company's Tim Cup Challenge pitted nearly 900 restaurants across
Canada and the United States against each other in an event that
measured their speed, order accuracy and friendliness. The team from
St. John's, "Renee's Angels", located at 343 Main Road in Goulds,
proved they have what it takes to be crowned hospitality champions.
"We know people have many restaurant options these days but we know our
amazing restaurant teams are an important part of why our guests come
back time and time again," said Sandra Sturgess, Director of
Hospitality, Tim Hortons. "We wanted to celebrate our teams in a fun
way so we created the national Tim Cup Challenge to recognize and
reward those team members who provide the best customer service."
The final competition was held yesterday in Ottawa and the winning team
from St. John's received $6,000 per team member, a trophy and of
course, bragging rights.
