It was only a matter of time before Tim Horton shuttered its iconic Chicago location.
The iconic restaurant had a long, proud history in the city, and now, as it closed, there were more options than ever before.
With all the great restaurants and shops closing, we thought it would be a great idea to have a look back at some of the best and brightest restaurants that closed in 2017.
Tim Hortons Chicago opened in 1956 in the heart of the Loop, where it has been a fixture since the 1950s.
The restaurant was named after the iconic coffee shop where employees would work to keep the coffee flowing.
The coffee shop was located on the second floor of the historic brick building that housed the Sears department store.
The chain was founded in 1959 by founder John Malone.
Since then, the franchise has grown to more than 100 stores in 26 states, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
It has more than 2,000 employees in the United States and more than 25,000 worldwide.
The original Tim Hortopas opened in 1959, and it was located at 4141 W. Lincoln Ave.
in Chicago’s historic Logan Square neighborhood.
There is no longer a Tim Hortpies location in Chicago.
The chain closed its stores in the suburbs of Chicago in 2015 and 2016.

At the time, the chain had a lot of competition from a number of other Chicago-area fast-food chains.
It opened in 1964, and at the time of its relaunch, the Chicago market was the most expensive in the nation, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
While the franchise did well in the early years of the chain, it lost market share and customers during the recession of the 1990s and 2000s.
