There is plenty of talk of a Tim Hortons opening in Sooke and according to a statement released by T’Sou-ke First Nation, Sooke could very well have its first ever Tim Hortons very soon.
The T’Sou-ke First Nation say they have entered into a preliminary business arrangement with Tim Hortons, Esso and On the Run Convenience.
They plan to pursue the construction of a franchise restaurant and gas station on the undeveloped portion of T’Sou-ke reserve land at 6080 Sooke Road.
A job listing for the possible Sooke location on UsedVctoria indicated the franchise could be opened as soon as June but there are reports saying it will open by fall.
“Also known affectionately by members of the community as the gravel pit,” T’Sou-ke Administrator Michelle Thut said in a statement.
“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.”
