WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Popular Canadian coffee shop chain Tim Hortons will be brewing at the White Plains Train Station, Metro-North Railroad announced.

The franchise will be operated by Gateway Foods, which also will begin operations of the newsstand at the station, replacing longtime newsstand operator Gary Waxman , who decided to retire.

The company offered the highest rent for both the 232-square-foot concession space and the 156-square-foot newsstand, Metro-North said. There were 21 proposals for the concession space and 12 for the newsstand in response to a recent request for proposals.

Gateway will pay $79,200 a year for the coffee concession and $63,360 for the newsstand with 35 annual rent increases during the 10-year term, according to Metro-North. The board of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority approved the lease earlier this month.

Gateway proposes to make extensive renovations to the space. The station is the busiest in New York State outside Grand Central Terminal. The White Plains Station is used by nearly 20,000 people a day.
