FOCUS Brands announced today it has named Chad Scales as senior vice president of business development. In this newly created role, Chad’s primary responsibility will be to develop new lines of business, including product creation, manufacture, and sales for Carvel Ice Cream, Cinnabon, Schlotzsky’s, Moe’s Southwest Grill, and Auntie Anne’s Pretzels.
The holiday season has arrived, and with it comes shopping, family, and Cinnabon.
Schlotzsky’s announced that it has signed a history-making franchise deal to bring 30 new restaurants throughout the Philadelphia metro area that will also house Cinnabon and Carvel franchises inside the buildings.
Schlotzsky’s, Carvel, and Cinnabon are all part of the parent company FOCUS Brands Inc. The three food franchises began partnering early last year to open tri-branded locations and have seen robust sales due to this strategy.
Between now and November 5 at participating bakeries, Cinnabon invites guests to “Fall in Love” with creamy caramel and a crispy churro.
From October 9-11, 200 industry insiders gathered in Atlanta at what has become known among executives as one of the can’t-miss conferences of the year.

The new Creamy ReTreat is an exclusive blend of premium Oreo cookies, a hint of vanilla, and ribbons of Ghirardelli chocolate sauce.
Cinnabon, the 25-year-old market leader among cinnamon roll bakeries, has named Frank Ross, Jr., as its Franchise Partner of the Year. Ross successfully operates bakeries in Albany and Columbus, Georgia.
