Tim Hortons to open up in Sooke this fall

The franchise will open up shop in town as part of a new Esso gas station.

A Tim Hortons will be opening up shop in Sooke this fall as a drive-thru as part of an Esso On the Run gas station, a Tim Hortons spokesperson confirmed on Tuesday morning.

“We are pleased to confirm that we will be opening a new Tim Hortons in Sooke this fall,” Hailey Dedominicis, senior manager of communications at Tim Hortons, wrote in an email. “Conveniently located within an Esso, this location will also serve guests through a drive-thru.”

The new Timmie’s will not be a standalone building, just a 750-foot drive-thru as part of the Esso.

The news comes after the T’Sou-ke First Nation announced it has entered into a preliminary business arrangement with Tim Hortons and Esso, and plan to build the facility on undeveloped T’Sou-ke reserve land in the nearby vicinity of Sooke Road.

“While there is still much work to be done before any construction begins, the Nation is excited to announce their progress in anticipation of the project’s social and economic benefit that would be shared by the entire Sooke community,” said T’Sou-ke administrator Michelle Thut.

Word of a Timmie’s coming to town first broke out when an ad on usedvictoria.com was posted by the facility’s leasee and franchise holder, SBMC Holdings Ltd., for a baker position at the proposed new facility.
