Somerset County Freeholder Director Pat Walsh said it is good to get a quality chain in the area because of the quality of the shop and how it is maintained.

“It builds confidence in the area,” she said.

Kerrim Jivani, owner of the Raritan store, said it was nice to bring this brand to an area that has a connection to three different towns right outside its doors.

“This brand needs this town to show it off,” he said. “This is a high end brand with high quality food.”

Tim Hortons is known for its coffee, donuts, muffins and other café and bakery items. The first one opened in 1964 in Canada, with the first American one opening in 1985 in Amherst, NY.
