Vegan gourmet cinnamon roll bakery Cinnaholic announced plans for a widespread franchise growth initiative back in 2017, and has now taken its award-winning concept all across the U.S. and North America.

Cinnaholic began 2018 with 76 locations in development. Now set to close out its second quarter, there are 136 in development, an increase of 79 percent.  The Atlanta-based company has recently reached franchise development deals in Texas, Florida, California, Canada, and several other major markets.

“To say we’re ‘on a roll’ is an understatement,” says Florian Radke, co-founder of Cinnaholic. “This has been an incredible growth-year for us—and we’re only half-way through. After proving our concept to be a hit with consumers, franchisees, and industry insiders, we’ve been able to significantly grow the Cinnaholic footprint and become a highly sought-after franchise opportunity, both at home and internationally.”

Cinnaholic was founded in 2009, gained national attention after an appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank, and began franchising in 2014. The company was recently named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Top New Franchises of 2018” list for its unique and attractive franchise opportunity.

“Beyond just the great-tasting products, our customers seek out Cinnaholic because of our dedication to ethically and humanely sourced ingredients,” says Radke. “The trust we’ve built with consumers, along with our monumental growth in the first part of this year, allows us to focus growing our franchise opportunity in new markets.”
