Saint Cinnamon Franchise

Cinnamon rolls & baked goods

The Saint Cinnamon brand was founded and created by Andy Winter.  Andy began his restaurant career in 1973 opening a new Deli franchise called Zeev's. Over the next few years Zeev's grew to over 10 locations and was very successful.  During a trip to the US, Andy had seen a new cinnamon bun franchise and was fascinated by the concept but thought he could do better. The US market was buzzing with excitement about the new cinnamon buns being baked everywhere. He loved the idea and decided that this was where he wanted to focus his attention. Upon his return he sold his interest in Zeev's to his partners so he could pursue his dream of developing a brand new Cinnamon Bun concept.

Wanting to create the best Cinnamon Bun in the market, Andy researched and sourced the finest ingredients available.  After countless hours baking, Andy developed special dough using Canadian Spring wheat flour. Sourcing the finest cinnamon in the world, he formulated the exclusive Saint cinnamon sugar blend and the Saint Cinnamon bun and brand was born.  Later he developed the most decadent cream cheese icing.

In 1986 the first Saint Cinnamon store opened in The Town & Country Mall, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Saint Cinnamon's cinnamon rolls which were baked in full view of the customers quickly became a big hit with Canadians and stores began opening in mall locations throughout Ontario.
As customers approached the Saint Cinnamon stores, the wonderful aroma of fresh baked cinnamon buns had a mesmerizing effect on people.  The thought of eating one was simply irresistible.

At that time, the food menu was strictly cinnamon rolls, complemented with an array of specialty coffees, teas, and cold beverages. Saint Cinnamon was rolling out a lot of stores and soon earned a world-wide reputation for baking and offering the finest cinnamon rolls around the globe.

Saint Cinnamon was awarded for being the fastest growing QRS in Canada from the Food Service and Hospitality magazine.  By 1990 it received numerous enquiries from abroad which resulted in the expansion into international markets.

Saint Cinnamon has grown into a franchise with locations in malls, office buildings, gas stations and convenience stores.  The menu was expanded to include crepes, wraps, sandwiches, and specialty cold beverages. The Saint Cinnamon model can fit a number of different possible retail, licensing, co-branding locations and special event venues.

Saint Cinnamon's specialty continues to be and will always be the baking of its amazing Saint Cinnamon Rolls.
