Cinnabon is World Class because their franchisees say they are!
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.
With more than 1,500 bakeries in 50 countries serving baked goods and specialty-blended beverages, our vision is quite simple – to be the world’s best-known, highest-quality, and most craveable baked goods and specialty beverage brand for anyone wanting to treat themselves and others. As we grow the Cinnabon® brand through multiple venue types, we’re focused on being diverse and flexible, from our Full to our Co-branded Bakeries. At Cinnabon®, we’re dedicated to the success of our Franchise Partners and are focused on providing world-class support and service based on respect and trust. When you join the Cinnabon® family, you’ll be working with experienced professionals who have extensive brand building, marketing, development and operational experience in all functions of the foodservice and bakery and coffee shop franchise industries.
Passion separates Cinnabon® franchise owners from the rest. In addition to our freshly baked treats, Cinnabon® has expanded into delectable packaged goods that keep the brand top of mind.
