Per Hunter, “Tim Hortons started becoming a cultural touchstone in Canada”. In his book, he also wrote about the competitor coffee chains like Starbucks, Fast food chains like McDonald’s and Subway. Tim Hortons has faced mounting challenges from competitors but, for the most part, Tim has kept his market dominance in Canada by doing things effectively and efficiently. Hunter wrote, “They have executed very well on big obvious things like quality, the speed of service, value pricing and ubiquity”. (Rise Of Tim Hortons, June 29,2017)
This relationship sparks an image that can be related to across Canada, therefore making it a part of Canadian identity. Living next to America who prides itself in displaying its patriotism, Canada sometimes gets lost in the noise. Canadians also create a relationship between donuts and crossing the border. When relatives visit, Canadians who are traveling will ask for a box of donuts from Tim Hortons. Even when bought by Wendy’s, the link between Tim Hortons and national identity was not broken.
As well as the benefits of having a branch and working for one in the future. Did you know that, “Despite competition from American interlopers (also known as competition), According to Furdyk who is a (ie. Author), he states that Tim Hortons remains at the top of Canada’s fast food chain, outselling every other fast food restaurant- inlcuding McDonalds”. It shows that Tim Hortons is doing all the right things because it is beating top ranked fast food restaurants.
Tim Hortons and its customers work well together. As the biggest (and most recognized) coffee and doughnut company in the nation, the restaurant chain has developed a distinct brand identity. They are currently developing a social identity that supports and drives that brand on a worldwide level. Tim Hortons prefers a people-first social strategy that represents the company's values over targeting the entire country of Canada as their key audience and using that audience to engage and create relevant content.
I was hired as a pastry cook at the Little America Hotel in Flagstaff, Arizona but that wasn’t enough. I worked as a dishwasher, pantry cook, banquet cook, and line cook. I loved every second of being in the kitchen but all I could think about was being in the front of the house. During my sixteen hour shifts I would often think, what is the perfect job for me? I couldn’t pick just one so instead I created a list of goals my career should fulfill.
Off to Tahoe One day when I was visiting Tahoe my mom called a family meeting and she said we were all as a family going to move to Incline Village. I started crying on the inside but on the outside I was showing much exitement. I felt really sad but I didn’t want to disappoint my mom so I never told her.
Tim Hortons has a lot of social initiatives that they run in society. Their social initiatives include, camps for children, recycling programs and sports programs. Social responsibility is defined as, “The obligation of an organization's management towards the welfare and interests of the society in which it operates.” (Social Responsibility, n.d.). This means that the organization intends to contribute to society, including the environment in a positive manner.
Tim Hortons being known for its coffee and doughnuts was it’s busiest during the morning hours. So, to help out during the busy weekend mornings, the storeowner would also come in and work. Though the storeowner was a relatively nice guy, he had a tendency to be quite a jerk when things didn’t go exactly how he wanted. One morning I really had the chance to see his lack of professionalism in the work place and his lack of leadership skills. It was Sunday morning
Five years ago, I worked for Publix Supermarket, and I lived in Warner Robins Georgia. This next weekend was inventory time and the entire store was to be counted by Monday morning. Nobody was pleased about offering up their weekend for inventory. The stores morale was extremely low, and no one wanted to be counting inventory all weekend. Our supervisor decided to offer each one a chance to demonstrate how effective they could work as a team.
Everyone has a responsibility to do. However, for working student like me that having a part-time job while taking college courses is a big responsibility. I decided to go to school full-time and work part-time to learn to become independent. In the essay “Working at Wendy’s” by Joey Franklin, he makes a case for setting aside pride to provide the daily needs of a family. On the other hand, I think it was great to have the experience as long as it made me more money.
Motivation allows for an employee to work harder than he already is. Many employees tend to exhibit their ambition within careers which contain opportunities that grant the advancement to higher platforms. However, despite there being such a low amount of career advancement possibilities at McDonald’s, securing a job at the fast food restaurant did not prevent Marissa Nuñez from gaining and displaying motivation. Rather, obtaining this job sparked her desire to succeed from her first real day; she began her career with an idea to race her cousin, who was also a McDonald’s employee at the time; this race consisted of a goal which was to determine “who could get the most customers and who could fill the orders in fifty-nine seconds” (440). Although, this action was more trivial than not, it sparked Marissa Nuñez’ inspiration to strive without her even knowing.
My Worst Job When I was sixteen, one of my middle school friends named Jessica was a shift leader at dunkin she wanted me to work with her for the summer to have some extra money. It seemed like a lot of fun for the first week or so, but it turned out to be the worst job of my life. My job was the front cash register. This was fun I actually enjoyed it
Tim Horton has a comparative advantage in terms of price competitiveness. They offer various menu with reasonable price. They have had the most franchises in Canada as well. Even though the company is moving to extend their area from Canada into foreign markets, the popularity of the company is still a range of around the North America. Whereas, Starbucks has the biggest strength of its brand name value in the world coffee industry.
