If [Tim Hortons] and the Canadian Forces agree to terms, Mr. Cleyson [director of the Canadian Forces Personnel Support Agency for the Afghanistan mission] said a small "Tims trailer" could be in place within a couple of weeks, perhaps even days depending on how the availability of cargo space on the military flights into Kandahar.
"There's a lot of logistics involved certainly," he said, "but it wouldn't take much to get it up and running."
The 800 Canadians now in Kandahar air field have been buzzing for weeks about the prospect of being able to buy a double-double on their way to their duties.
"American coffee just isn't the same thing," said one grizzled warrant officer, making a face at his morning cup of coffee in the base's mess tent.
"I'd pay some serious coin for a good cup of Timmies."
I still maintain that there should be fleets of Tim-Mobiles sent to the US to save all of us expats from Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts!
I think that sending the Tim-Mobile to Khandahar is a great idea. Too bad Tim Hortons doesn't seem to be too onboard with it. It would certainly make for a good commercial, similar to the one from a few years back where the student in Scotland was sent coffee, a coffee maker, and some paper cups! LOL
