Am I the only one who was totally underwhelmed by Trader Joe's? My American friends rave about it, but it just sold stuff I could get a local grocery store....except the cheapo wine.

Any Chain that is regional in the U.S are most likely not in Canada. (for example Jack in the box, white castle, chick-fila etc.)

Dunkins doesn't do well up against Tim Hortons. In western New york we have both and Tims has way more locations now.

I can get to 3 Tims within a mile of my home. All are extremely busy every morning. Drive-thrus at times have 20 cars waiting at the one i go to most. In the same area there are only 2 Dunkins and they are small ones inside of Gas stations and are never busy. One is right next to the Tims i mentioned and while waiting in the Drive thru line i rarely see cars going through the Dunkins drive thru

edit: just checked on dunkins canadian website and the only locations coming up in the locator are in Montreal
