NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WZZM) -- It's the restaurant many of our viewers say they want in West Michigan -- now the Tim Hortons in Norton Shores is almost ready to open.
The doughnut, coffee and sandwich shop will open at 6 a.m. Wednesday on Henry Street near Meijer. It's paired with a Cold Stone Creamery, and will be open 24 hours a day.
On Monday, the employees went through training before opening day.
"It was a tough process, but in the end we hired about 38 team members," says co-owner Mike Grail. "A lot of them are going to management. As we grow into the future, everyone here is going to have that opportunity to grow with us."
The Canada-based Tim Hortons chain already has two West Michigan locations open -- one is inside the Gun Lake Casino in Allegan County, while the other is in Grand Haven. It also sells doughnuts inside Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids. Another Tim Hortons location is being built in Walker.
