A new Tim Hortons cafe and bake shop is coming soon to the Seneca Bailey section of South Buffalo.
The Buffalo Planning Board, Tuesday morning, approved plans by the coffee store chain to build a 1,393-square-foot full service restaurant at 1374 Seneca Street. The outlet will include a sit-down restaurant and drive through operation.
Construction is expected to start in a few weeks and the outlet is scheduled to open by the end of the year.
Ontario-based Tim Hortons, a chain named after and founded by the late professional hockey defenseman, has more than 175 local sites, including stand-alone restaurants, kiosks and operations inside such diverse venues as Tops Friendly Markets and Seneca Niagara Casino and Resort. Horton played for the Buffalo Sabres from 1972 until his death in February 1974.
