The Company

The allure of Cinnabon® is unmistakable. No one walks by a Cinnabon® without being enveloped by the inviting scent of cinnamon and freshly baked treats. It creates a craving that guests have to satisfy. To our guests, that sweet aroma of Cinnabon® means something delicious is coming their way, and to our franchise owners, it means even more.

It all started with a father, a son, and a mission to create the world’s greatest cinnamon roll from scratch. Add in one master baker, months of trial and error, hundreds of different recipes, and—BOOM!—you’ve got the sweet, cinnamon-spiced perfection that soon became the calling card of Cinnabon®.

Since our first bakery opened in Seattle in 1985, the Cinnabon® brand has become world famous and competes in the popular bakery franchise and coffee shop franchise environments.
