Tim Hortons opens this month * Tim Hortons is opening its first of 40 planned restaurants in the St. Louis area at 6 a.m. on June 23, the chain said Friday. Tim Hortons, a Canadian coffee and doughnut chain that also serves sandwiches, wraps and soup, will employ 50 at its new Maplewood location at Manchester Road and South Big Bend Boulevard. Named after a professional hockey player, Tim Hortons has about 4,700 restaurants, mostly in Canada. The chain has about 900 U.S. restaurants, and began selling coffee at Scottrade Center, where the St. Louis Blues hockey team plays, in late 2014. Show Me Hospitality LLC, the chain's local franchisee, is scouting for additional locations throughout the region. Tim Hortons also is planning to open an Express Cafe at Reliance Bank's new branch at Lindbergh and Clayton in Frontenac, serving beverages and baked goods. Later this summer, Tim Hortons also plans to open a restaurant in St. Louis' Cortex district at BJC HealthCare's BJC @ The Commons building near Boyle and Clayton Avenues.

The health system is moving forward on the project despite a lawsuit filed last month that challenges the state regulators' approval of the project. St. Elizabeth's parent company Hospital Sisters Health System is listed as a defendant in the suit filed May 21 in St. Clair County by the city of Belleville and Mayor Mark Eckert. The suit alleges that the board's approval is "not consistent with the public interest" and "adversely impacts access to health care." In April, the project received approval from the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board after a lengthy, heated debate in the community. Some critics saw the move as a way to improve payor mix by moving to a wealthier area. Hospital administrators deny that characterization.
