Cinnaholic Celebrates Monumental Growth in First Half of 2019
Gourmet Vegan Bakery Grows Franchise Footprint Across North America
July 09, 2019 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA - Cinnaholic, the gourmet cinnamon roll bakery acclaimed for serving innovative plant-based cinnamon roll creations, announced today record-breaking growth in the first half of 2019. The brand has already 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.
“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,” said 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.”
To celebrate the nine-year anniversary of Cinnaholic’s first roll ever served out of the original location in Berkeley, California, the brand will be celebrating its second annual World Cinnaholic Day. On Wednesday, July 17, all locations will serve $1 cinnamon rolls from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The brand projects a strong growth trajectory with newly signed agreements in San Antonio and Austin, Texas; Tulsa, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Tampa and Coral Springs, Florida; Nashua, New Hampshire; and Birmingham, Alabama. With more than 100 locations in the development pipeline, Cinnaholic is on track to reach 50 locations by the end of 2019 and open another 25 by the end of 2020.
Cinnaholic has set itself apart as a “better-for-you” option exclusively using plant-based ingredients without sacrificing taste. Its variety of frosting and topping options make each customer experience truly unique, appealing to sweet-toothed dessert lovers across North America. The brand also provides catering services, serving sweet treats for events large and small from birthday or office parties to baby showers and weddings. Customers can expect nothing less than the highest quality ingredients, as the plant-based bakery franchise was founded upon a commitment that all ingredients must be animal-free and free of dairy, lactose, eggs and cholesterol.
In addition to low startup costs and manageable operations, franchise owners are provided extensive corporate training as well as real estate, construction, operations, marketing and grand opening support, making for a truly sweet franchise opportunity. This high performing business model has made Cinnaholic a highly sought-after franchise brand.
As Cinnaholic sets its sights on continued growth, it seeks out qualified single-unit and multi-unit investors in a range of market sizes throughout the United States and Canada, including Chicago, New Jersey, New York and Washington D.C., to expand the brand. The flexible business model works well in upscale lifestyle centers, major city centers and near college campuses. A notable contributor to franchisees’ success is the relatively low cost of owning and operating a Cinnaholic location, specifically the small footprint (around 1,000 square feet) and low food and labor costs.
