Tim Hortons, the quintessential Canadian doughnut chain (even if it’s owned by Wendy’s) — right down to being named after a hockey player — is going public. The company filed its S-1 today, and it’s fun reading. For instance, by my quick calculation the company serves up around 563,396,800 doughnuts per year in Canada, which is roughly 35,000 tons, or around one 1970s vintage supertanker worth of glazed Timbits. A scary thought.
