Schlotzsky’s, home of The Original round toasted sandwich and Fresh-from-Scratch buns, today announced the grand reopening of the Schlotzsky’s location on Poplar Avenue in Memphis, Tennessee. The unit now features a Cinnabon Express inside, offering Memphis residents a fresh-baked sweet treat in addition to its sandwich menu. Schlotzsky’s is inviting the local community to stop by the celebration on September 9, which begins at 10:30 a.m. The first 50 customers to purchase six-pack of Cinnabon treats will receive free Schlotzsky’s for a year.
When George Michel took the chief executive reins at Boston Market in October 2010, he inherited a concept with a tumultuous 25-year history that included bankruptcy, a headline-grabbing purchase—and subsequent sale—by McDonald’s, uneven numbers, and fading consumer interest.
In no time, though, Michel instituted a number of changes to stabilize Boston Market, including one unusual initiative: making interaction with restaurant guests one of his top priorities. “Being close to the customer is critically important,” he says. “I get to learn what they value, what they appreciate.”
Schlotzsky’s announced the opening of its newest Lotz Better location at 3530 NW Center Drive in Fort Worth. The new restaurant brings more than 40 jobs to the local economy.

The foodservice industry has come a long way since the days when it was dominated by men, with more than half of the restaurant talent pool now made up of women. From the front counter to the corner office, women are increasingly influencing the future of the industry.
When Cinnabon president Kat Cole participated in the CBS show “Undercover Boss,” she bonded with Mayra Vargas, a bakery employee. As Vargas spoke of her mother’s battle with breast cancer and her family’s challenges, the inspiration to provide guidance and support became a mission of Cole’s.
Cole and Vargas were invited back for the season finale, “Epic Bosses,” which aired this Friday, May 17. On the episode, Cole announced “Sweet Support”, a nationwide fundraiser to support breast cancer.
As a sweet thank you for the remarkable service nurses provide, Cinnabon and The DAISY Foundation are celebrating National Nurses’ Week by offering nurses free Cinnabon cinnamon rolls when they show their healthcare badges at participating bakeries May 6–12, 2013.
In addition to the Classic Roll, nurses this year can receive a Minibon Roll, a smaller version of the Cinnabon cinnamon roll.
Tax Day is known far and wide as one of the most stressful days of the year. To ease that pressure, participating Cinnabon Bakeries across the country are offering up free bite-sized treats on April 15 as part of its fifth annual Tax Day Bites promotion.
Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, Cinnabon has introduced a new minty treat: the Oreo Mint Chillatta.
The new specialty beverage is available now at participating Cinnabon bakeries.
This creamy Chillatta is a blend of sweet cream, Oreo cookies, mint flavoring, and a ribbon of chocolate sauce, topped with whipped cream and crumbled Oreo cookie pieces.
