While friendliness is often synonymous with Canadian culture, a reported 50% of Canadians claim to not know the person living next door to them, which is why Tim Hortons' 'Coffee With Neighbors' initiative is presenting consumers with such a simple and touching sentiment.
Tim Hortons' representatives braved the cold Canadian winter to knock on strangers' doors with a simple question: "Would you have coffee with your neighbor?" While the question was initially met with hesitation, individuals eventually agreed to sit down with the person living next door to them. To facilitate the chat, the famed coffee brand set up a tiny table with two chairs on the lawns of the selected individuals, and brought the neighbors "a shared love - Canada’s favourite coffee."
