Atlanta — Cinnaholic, the gourmet cinnamon roll bakery acclaimed for serving innovative plant-based cinnamon roll creations, has opened 10 franchise locations since January in new markets including New Jersey, Houston, Phoenix and Ottawa, Ontario, bringing its total location count to 38 units. The brand hopes to reach 50 locations by year end, and 75 by the end of 2020.
“Our franchise model has proven successful time and time again, and the fact that many of our existing franchisees are opening additional locations is a true indicator of our products resonating with customers and our concept’s profitability for investors,” says Spencer Reid, president of Cinnaholic. “We are excited to continue our expansion into new markets at a rapid rate with new and existing franchisees across North America.”
The brand projects a strong growth trajectory with newly signed agreements in San Antonio and Austin, Texas; Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Okla.; Tampa and Coral Springs, Fla.; Nashua, N.H.; and Birmingham, Ala.
