Tim Hortons open drive-thru in Dunstable todayHALAL STATUS Halal chicken options (prepped & cooked separately)
As they prepare for their big London debut in Park Royal, Canadian fast food chain Tim Hortons have quietly opened in Dunstable today.
Located in White Lion Retail Park on Boscombe Road, they celebrate by awarding the first customer in the drive-thru and first in the restaurant queue with free drinks for a whole year (worth a £3,100).
Tim Hortons introduced a pair of Halal items to their menu in 2019 which that recently included a Halal Turkey Hot Dog, a spokesperson informed FtLion last year.
Tim Hortons cater for trio of Halal items…
“Our Turkey Hot Dog is Halal approved. Please note that if you are purchasing our new Tims Turkey Hot Dog, please ensure you order with tomato ketchup and not the maple & chorizo ketchup which is sold as standard.
“The Chicken and Turkey Hot Dogs are baked in our restaurants on separate trays, therefore there is segregation of the Halal-certified products throughout the process,” the representative said.
The other two items include the Tims Crispy Chicken and the Tims Chicken Tenders which are “sourced from suppliers whose products are certified as Halal by religious authorities” and the “chicken is baked in our restaurants on separate trays. Therefore there is segregation of the Halal certified chicken throughout the process”.
Tim Hortons clarified: “We don’t promote our restaurants or meat as Halal approved. However, our Tims Crispy Chicken and Tims Chicken Tenders are sourced from suppliers whose products are certified as Halal by religious authorities.”
The business also explained that while “the rest of our meat is purchased from EU countries and is not Halal…. The chicken is baked in our restaurants on separate trays. Therefore there is segregation of the Halal certified chicken throughout the process”.
Made with a toasted brioche bun, the sandwich is filled with crispy chicken, green leaf lettuce, sliced tomato, smokey tomato sauce and mayonnaise, while the tenders are served with a dip of choice.
White Lion Retail Park, Boscombe Rd, Dunstable LU5 4WL.
Opening Hours: Mon-Sun 06:00-00:00
