A planning application for a new Tim Hortons outlet in Ballymena, Co. Antrim, has been lodged with Mid and East Antrim Borough Council.
As reported by The Belfast Telegraph, the council has received a planning application to turn the former Frankie and Benny's restaurant on Ballymena's Larne Road Link into a drive-through Tim Hortons café with outdoor seating.
Tim Hortons reportedly said that it is currently unable to comment on the matter.

In other Ballymena restaurant news, a mixed-use facility in the vicinity of a former car park on the town's Southern Link Road is reportedly expected to include a drive-through restaurant in addition to a 24-hour filling station.
Change of use permission for the site was reportedly granted at a council meeting in September of 2020, and Burger King has reportedly dismissed speculation that is interested in occupying the facility's restaurant space.
