U.S. giant Starbucks will soon be getting some Canadian competition at the China coffee counter.

Tim Hortons, a household name in its home market, is looking to follow its American counterpart to China’s tea-drinking culture by offering its signature coffee, doughnuts and other food to local consumers. The company, owned by Restaurant Brands International Inc., plans to open about 1,500 new shops in China over the next decade, it announced on Wednesday.
