It began as a simplified version of a grandmother's recipe, and turned into a
sweet smelling global sensation. In 1985, Restaurants Unlimited hired Bainbridge
Island, WA resident Jerilyn Brusseau to create a recipe for the perfect cinnamon
roll. After three months, and 1,000 attempts, the now famous Cinnabon Cinnamon
Roll was introduced through its first location in Seattle's Sea Tac Mall.
The company quickly began franchising in 1986, opened its first international
location in 1987, and celebrated its 500th bakery in September 2001. Today,
Cinnabon bakeries range in size from 400 to 1,200 square feet, and are found in
malls, airports, travel plazas, hospitals, casinos, universities, train
stations, and theme parks worldwide. Bakeries are also found in a number of
different formats and in a wide variety of locations, including a mobile bakery
stand, kiosk, and street side.
Now a division of FOCUS Brands, Cinnabon is poised for growth as the cinnamon
roll craze continues around the globe. Because our bakeries are modern versions
of the traditional neighborhood bakery, our guests are always guaranteed unique
and delicious treats in a warm and friendly atmosphere - just like grandmother
used to make.
