A vegan gourmet cinnamon roll bakery chain has been on the rise over the last few years. Cinnaholic has been taking its award-winning concept all across the U.S. and North America, and it will continue to pursue new markets in the coming year.

On Monday, February 11, the company announced its strategic growth for 2019. This comes on the heels of the bakery recently being named to Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list.

“We are honored to receive this ranking,” says Spencer Reid, president of Cinnaholic. “We look forward to building upon this growth in 2019, as we form new relationships, expand into new markets, and offer our existing franchisees continued support. We had such great success last year and can’t wait for another year full of openings and new partnerships.”

In 2018, Cinnaholic opened more than 17 locations across domestic and international markets, including Toronto, Charlotte, Seattle, and Dallas/Fort Worth. It currently has 100 units in development throughout North America and is seeking out even more, including such areas as Houston, Chicago, and Vancouver among others.

Cinnaholic was founded in 2009, gained national attention after an appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank, and began franchising in 2014.
