It's not a bad thing, and at least they're not Californians. Lord knows we've seen plenty of people from The Golden State make their way to God's Country over the years.

Welcome To Texas

There are certain brands that just seem to live off of word of mouth alone. Tim Hortons is one of them. I've never been to Canada, but as a coffee lover, I am well aware of Tim Horton's coffee.

Now it looks like they are expanding the empire into Texas and their first location will be a nice drivable distance away... in Katy, Texas.

Tim Horton's Coffee

ABC 13 reports that the iconic Canadian brand coffee will head to the great state of Texas and brings their coffee and donut shop with them. The Katy, Texas location should be open by August with two more locations opening in Houston later in the year.

So what should we expect besides coffee? Tim Hortons brings donuts, breakfast sandwiches, tea, iced beverages and plenty more.

600 and Counting

With 4,000 locations throughout Canada, and more than 600 locations in the U.S., with most of them in New York, Ohio and Michigan, Texas is as far south as they've been.

California or Canada

We could make a list of the pros and cons for California or Canada, but as long as we get some good coffee out of the deal, Canada, plus Canadians, are notoriously nicer.

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple

A while back, I asked the good people of Temple if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.

This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).

So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.

Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!
