Get ready to fill up on Timbits.
WKYC has confirmed that Tim Hortons is coming to Northeast Ohio.
Franchise owner Jeff Linville says the brand has plans to open 105 Tim Hortons locations starting next year.
According to Linville, the new locations should bring about 2,200 jobs to the Youngstown, Sandusky, Cleveland and Canton areas.
Construction begins in May.
For those who may not be familiar, Tim Hortons is named for and was begun by the legendary NHL hockey player. Horton opened his first store in Hamilton, Ontario in 1964. Within four years, it had become a multi-million dollar franchise operation.
Tim Hortons is well known for their coffee, donuts, and Timbits. (see below for a look at the 'bite-sized blasts of flavor' known as Timbits)
