Cinnabon Eyes Missouri For Rapid Expansion

Sunday, September 15, 2013

Cinnabon, Inc., the snack leader in the bakery-cafe segment, plans to significantly expand its footprint in Missouri, including the greater St. Louis metro area, by opening five mall-based franchise bakeries in the coming months.

Cinnabon(R), which currently has 10 locations throughout the state, is seeking franchisees to develop bakeries in the following malls located in Missouri and bordering areas in Illinois:

Mid Rivers Mall
St. Peters, Mo.
South County Center
St. Louis, Mo.
Battlefield Mall
Springfield, Mo.
St. Clair Square
Fairview Heights, Ill.
Eastland Mall
Bloomington, Ill.

"The number one request we hear from Cinnabon guests in Missouri is to make it easier for them to enjoy our indulgent treats," said Kat Cole, President of Cinnabon. "We are confident we will attract qualified franchisees to fulfill the high demand for Cinnabon in the state."

The Cinnabon brand's real estate team has pre-qualified the sites, meaning they match foot traffic and size requirements for a Cinnabon bakery and are ready for immediate development. Additionally, Cinnabon executives have leveraged their relationships with mall owners to pre-negotiate attractive lease agreements on behalf of prospective franchise candidates.

Cinnabon seeks relationships with highly motivated, local prospects with business, and preferably restaurant, experience. Interested candidates are invited to attend a Discovery Award Day event on Sept. 20, 2013 at the St. Louis Marriott West in Chesterfield, Mo., to learn more about the franchise opportunity and meet one-on-one with company executives. To register for the event, visit or call 404-257-7076. For more information about Cinnabon, visit
