Tim Hortons opening first UK store in Glasgow on Friday
Canadian cafe chain will open their doors to the public on Argyle Street at 9am.
Coffee fans are expected to queue up overnight in Glasgow as Canadian cafe chain Tim Hortons opens its first UK branch on Friday.
The store will open on Argyle Street with "nationwide expansion" also on the cards.
The chain is known for its coffee and doughnuts as well as more esoteric offerings including Timbits - bite-sized doughnut holes with a range of flavourings.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place after 8.30am with doors officially opening at 9am however it is anticipated there will be overnight queues to be among the first customers.
Over the course of the week running up to the grand opening the chain announced on social media special offers for the first guest as well as the first ten and first 100 people through the doors.
The first person to enter the store will win a year's supply of coffee, with the first ten receiving a year's supply of Timbits and the first 100 will be given a "free combo meal breakfast".
Eight out of ten cups of coffee sold across Canada are served at Tim Hortons and more than 5.3 million Canadians, approximately 15% of the population, visit the cafes daily.
Gurprit Dhaliwal, chief operating officer at Tim Hortons UK and Ireland, previously said: "We've witnessed Tim Hortons' phenomenal success in Canada, and wanted to replicate this in Great Britain.
"It's hard to explain just how important Tim Hortons is to Canadians, it's not just a restaurant, it's a way of life and a place of 'home', and we're positive Great Britain will fall in love with the brand."
