Instead of counting out your pennies for a coffee and donut, Tim Hortons is extending Interac to all of its Canadian locations by the end of November.
What began as a trial period in Western Canada back in 2003 has become wildly successful as a form of payment for the restaurant’s customers.
Speed of service, nor security was compromised as a result of the trial, which enforced the decision for the nationwide roll-out on Monday.
Right now, approximately 90% of Tim Hortons locations in Canada accept Interac.
Overall, the chain has 3,703 restaurants worldwide, including 3,082 in Canada.
