Ambrish Thakkar

Ambrish Thakkar

Ambrish emigrated from India to find a safe and accepting place to raise his family. For years he worked across the street from a Tim Hortons, and noticing its popularity with Canadians, decided to find out why.

He discovered that the same values that drew him to Canada were deeply rooted in the brand and knew this was the place far him. Now a Restaurant Owner, Ambrish inspires his Team Members daily to bring more than themselves to work, but to bring their heart and souls. Because a cup of coffee can be found at any store but a welcoming atmosphere can’t.

Being the pioneer of Thakkar Group and a true business acumen, he has been able to establish a network of Tim Hortons restaurants across the country. He stays connected with the business and community at grass-root level on daily basis and lives through his values and culture by his actions. He has been honored with various awards and recognitions by Tim Hortons corporate and local authorities/institutions for his outstanding performance in business and for his efforts to bring momentum in community involvement.

Outside of business, he is actively involved and admirer of Tim Hortons Children’s foundation and Art of Living (AOL Canada). In past, he has been involved with Autism Ontario, WSIB and LCF of Canada.
