Manitoulin Island’s only franchise is now under construction in Little Current.

The Tim Hortons franchise will be located at 45 Manitowaning Road in Little Current and is expected to bring 25 to 35 new jobs to the small town.

It will feature a sit-down area and drive-thru.

Construction has begun and will take a few months to complete and plans for a grand opening will depend on the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
