ONE Of Europe’s First Tim Horton’s Drive-Thru Coffee Shops Proposed For Site Near Ibrox

PLANS have been revealed for one of the first drive-thru Tim Horton’s coffee shops in Europe, at a vacant site near Ibrox Stadium.

An application for the development has been lodged with Glasgow City Council for land at Junction 24 Business Park, Helen Street at Edmiston Drive.

If approved, the coffee shop would be open 24 hours a day and have more than 90 seats. It would employ 25 people, 10 full-time and 15 part-time.

A supporting document submitted to the council states: “Tim Horton’s are looking to invest in the UK and have identified the application site as an ideal location for one of their stores.

“The proposal itself, represents one of the first drive-thru Tim Horton’s to be created within Europe and will generate investment at the site and provide a number of job opportunities to local residents.”

The statement continues: “The proposal will redevelop a vacant, brownfield site within an existing commercial area.The unit itself has been designed to accommodate the needs of the Tim Horton’s brand.

“The drive-thru unit itself will be located at the south of the site, with an outdoor seating area to the immediate west of the unit.”

Thirty-three car parking spaces including five disabled bays would be provided as well as eight cycle spaces and four motorcycle bays.

The land was earmarked for further office development but there has been lack of demand.

The application is now pending consideration by Glasgow City Council planning officials.
