Business Profile:

Cinnabon, started by a father and son searching for the best possible recipe for cinnamon rolls, is now considered “one of the world’s most-recognized and sought-after brands,” (  Both the recipe and first location, in the Sea Tac Mall in Seattle, Washington, were founded in 1985 and by 1986 the first first franchise location was open in Philadelphia.  Throughout the rest of the decade, Cinnabon continued to develop more recipes and expand. Cinnabon uses the highest-quality ingredients to ensure that their product is fresh, delicious and well made.
