About the Franchise

uploaded image In 1985, foodies in Seattle, WA wanted to make "the world's greatest cinnamon roll" for a new brand they were developing. They hired a local food connoisseur, and after three months, hundreds of kitchen experiments and many trips to Indonesia to find the best, most flavorful cinnamon, the team perfected the Cinnabon® recipe and opened the first Cinnabon bakery on Dec. 5, 1985. From there, the Cinnabon brand has become world famous with more than 900 bakeries in more than 40 countries. Cinnabon focuses on diverse and flexible bakery layouts, from their full bakeries to express and co-branded locations. They have assembled a team of experts who share the same goal: to help make the franchisees happy and successful.

What makes this franchise different?

Cinnabon's strategic locations in high-traffic areas including shopping malls, universities, casinos, amusement parks, military bases, train stations, and airports afford them exceptional exposure. The Cinnabon brand is one of the most recognized franchises in the world, and their success continues to spread with their traditional full bakeries as well as their express bakery layout. How many other brands can say they are recognized by sweet scent alone?

Ideal Franchising Candidate

The ideal franchisee must be excited for the opportunity to own their own Cinnabon Bakery and care for their Guests. They should have a proven record of success in the foodservice industry and should enjoy participating in their community. However, Cinnabon does offer an internship program to evaluate and train and otherwise ideal candidate without restaurant experience. Cinnabon has been serving delicious goodies for more than 25 years through their Full Bakeries (investment range: $191,800 - $392,989) and their Express Bakeries (investment range: $36,126 - $95,470). Make your dream a reality and experience the sweet rewards of becoming a Cinnabon Franchise Partner!
