Africa: The Final Frontier?

They knew it wouldn’t be easy. Being the first U.S. quick serve to enter a foreign country always comes with a share of challenges.

But for Cinnabon’s executives, becoming the first U.S. franchise to open in Libya didn’t just include dealing with training and supply-chain difficulties. The brand also faced political instability that eventually resulted in a revolution.

Cinnabon Pulls Together $56,000 for Operation Gratitude

Throughout the month of October, guests who visited Cinnabon bakeries showed their support for this heart-warming cause by making donations. For every $1 contribution, guests received a $1 Cinnabon coupon.

Cinnabon Reaches Milestone with 1,000 Bakeries

Cinnabon is on a roll, returning to its roots in Washington to celebrate the opening of its 1,000th bakery.

In 1985, Cinnabon opened the doors of its first bakery in the Sea Tac Mall in Federal Way, a suburb of Seattle. Now, 27 years later, the company's 1,000th bakery will open in Vancouver, Washington.

In addition to growing its network of flagship and express bakeries to 1,000 in 2012, the Cinnabon brand has expanded its footprint to cover 48 states and 50 countries this year.

A New Age for Women

This is not the 1950s. Women aren’t confined to the home, cooking, cleaning, and caring for the kids (unless they want to, of course), nor can they only find work as secretaries in a male-dominated corporate world. No, today, women have power: They can balance work and family life; they can excel in any profession; and, just like men, they can own their own businesses.

8 Simple Rules for Renovation

Remodeling restaurants in a franchised system is a tough sell and even tougher to execute, but the challenges are minimized for those who follow these guidelines.

In many respects, Cinnabon isn’t the brand it was just one decade ago. From the company’s growing beverage line to menu introductions like Center of the Roll and Cinnabon Stix, life within a Cinnabon’s four walls has shifted in the 21st century.

But executives realized a few years ago that the look of Cinnabon’s stores hadn’t similarly changed with the times. The brand’s so-called “heritage” look—a tile-dominated space outlined in blonde wood—had become dated and uninspired, lacking pop and contemporary charisma.

Cinnabon Partners with Operation Gratitude

Cinnabon is partnering with Operation Gratitude for its third annual “Hugs from Home” campaign to send care packages to troops overseas.

Throughout the month of October, guests can support this cause by making donations at participating bakeries.

For every $1.00 contribution, they will receive a $1.00 Cinnabon coupon, valid at participating bakeries until December 31, 2012.
