Partnership With Cold Stone Creamery
The parent company of Cold Stone Creamery, Kahala, announced in February 2009 that it had reached an agreement with Tim Hortons to open up to 100 co-branded stores in the United States after successfully testing two locations in Rhode Island. The most notable co-branded store opened in August 2009 when Tim Hortons moved into three Cold Stone Creamery locations in New York City, including its flagship Times Square location.
In June 2009, Cold Stone Creamery started testing the Canadian market by opening its six co-branded locations with Tim Hortons located in Toronto, Oakville, Mississauga, Hamilton, Whitby, and Pickering. As of December 2009, Cold Stone Creamery has been expanding its test markets in Canada. There are now four locations in Calgary, Alberta, three stores in Nova Scotia, five stores in Ontario, and three stores in New Brunswick. As of April 2010, there are now also Tim Hortons/ Cold Stone Creameries in Chilliwack, Duncan, Nanaimo, Kamloops and Victoria, British Columbia. In June 2010, locations opened in Markham, Ontario and Sudbury, Ontario. Also in June 2010, Cold Stone Creamery moved into six Tim Hortons locations in Quebec, including one in Montreal on St-Denis street. In the summer of 2010, Cold Stone Creamery also moved into the Tim Hortons location on Water Street in Summerside, PEI. A larger replacement Tim Hortons is currently under construction on St Peter's Road in Charlottetown, with a Cold Stone Creamery location built into the design. The current location is primarily a drive-thru setup, but the new building will feature a full restaurant.

“Nevertheless, no school can work well for children if parents and teachers do not act in partnership on behalf of the childrens best interests. Parents have every right to understand what is happening to their children at school, and teachers have the responsibility to share that information without prejudicial judgment.... Such communication, which can only be in a childs interest, is not possible without mutual trust between parent and teacher.”
—Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
“Old age grows cold to love.”
—Virgil [Publius Vergilius Maro] (7019 B.C.)
