J.E. Agnew Food Services Ltd. was founded by Jeff & Heather Agnew in 1981 when they took over an existing Tim Hortons store located at the corner of Princess St & MacDonnell in Kingston, Ontario. Since then, the company has grown to include sixteen Tim Hortons locations throughout Kingston. Agnew Foods continues to be run as a family business, spearheaded by Chief Executive Officer, Sherri Agnew. Sherri is one of Jeff & Heather's two daughters and is a graduate of the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario.

On average, the company employs 500 people and continues to grow. We are committed to implementing the Tim Hortons promise of providing fast and friendly service and good quality products at a great price to our customers each and every day.

The company's decision making is guided by the vision to be the "employer of choice" in the quick service industry in Kingston and by our desire to retain our staff, our most important resource.

J.E Agnew Food Services Ltd. is committed to the continued growth and development of its employees. By making coaching opportunities available, we will rise to a new level of excellence and achieve unprecedented results.

Business as usual is not a option for those whose sights are focused on continuous improvement and excellence. We are committed to maintain J.E. Agnew Food Services Ltd. as the undisputed leader in this industry wherever we choose to show the Tim Hortons banner.

We are challenging our whole organization and ourselves to achieve this by building strong leaders and creating a team spirit that makes working together more productive, more fun and a more meaningful experience. We are committed to customer service which consistently exceeds expectations; to retain our people; to reduce our costs; to manage our operations and to create new wealth for all. We will build leaders, not just managers, whose greatest skill is to align all members of our team with the vision of J.E. Agnew Food Services Ltd.
