Preserving a Timbit of history

A University of Saskatchewan alumnus is part of a team that redeveloped the world’s first Tim Hortons location.

Element Project Services (EPS), a Saskatoon-based engineering firm co-founded by mechanical engineering graduate Mark Oleniuk (BE '06), recently wrapped up extensive renovations to "Store One," the original location of the ubiquitous coffee chain and Canadian institution.

The location had its grand opening Jan. 7. In addition to serving all the Tim Hortons favourites, the store has a second-floor museum where retro uniforms and other pieces of company nostalgia are on display.

Local Hamilton media was on hand to mark the first day of operation for the renovated store.
