Tim Hortons franchisees are banding together to push back against the parent company’s cost-cutting campaign, saying that it is causing product shortages, declining quality and even safety concerns that are harming the brand.

A group of franchisees has formed the Great White North Franchisee Association to represent them in discussions with Restaurant Brands International Inc., which owns the Canadian fast food chain.
