BUSINESS FEATURE OF THE WEEK: TIMOTHY'S
1070 Eglinton Avenue West, 416-785-8600
The Timothy’s at Old Park Road and Eglinton Avenue West is quite the staple in the neighbourhood. It has many regular customers, as evidenced by owner Jasmine greeting everyone who walks in by name.
Since purchasing the Timothy’s in 2011, Jasmine has increased sales by 26 per cent in the first year.
“I was interested in a coffee shop, and Timothy’s makes the most sense,” says Jasmine.
Timothy’s is a franchise that ensures the strictest of quality and carries the most variety of coffee. Timothy’s tagline: Coffees of the world is evidenced by its coffee beans from all over, including Brazil, Costa Rica and Guatemala.
In addition to choosing from a light, medium or dark roast, at Timothy’s, within each roast category there are also dozens of beans - both flavoured and unflavoured - to choose from.
Each day there are seven new coffees in the brew line to choose from.
“Timothy has a staple which is the house blend,” says Jasmine. “But at this location, Hazelnut seems to be the staple. Everyone here loves hazelnut!”
For her many customers from Europe, Jasmine says they offer the best espressos too!
In addition to the impressive variety of coffee, Timothy’s recently introduced a fresh baked program where most pastries are baked on site.
Timothy’s stores are also the only locations where 24-pack Keurig cups are sold, for those customers who like to enjoy Timothy’s at home.
