Cinnabon® History

It all started with a father, a son and a mission to create the world’s greatest cinnamon roll from scratch. Add in one master baker, months of trial and error, hundreds of different recipes and— BOOM!—you’ve got the sweet, cinnamon-spiced perfection that soon became the calling card of Cinnabon®.

When the father-son duo finally landed on the most magical combination of exceptional ingredients from across the globe, they knew they’d created the perfect recipe. So on December 4, 1985, they transformed their hard-earned dream into a delicious reality with the opening of the first Cinnabon® Bakery in the SeaTac Mall in Seattle, Washington.

Devoured by thousands of eager, waiting guests, the original Cinnabon® cinnamon roll became an instant obsession. To this day, the Cinnabon experience continues to grow to delicious new heights. Not only are there now locations throughout the nation and in over 50 countries worldwide, but the menu has also expanded to offer exciting, new ways for guests to enjoy the irresistible pleasure that only Cinnabon can provide.

Cinnabon® is now one of the world’s most-recognized and sought-after brands. You’ll find it where you shop, travel, dine and play. In fact, you can even find it on grocery store shelves to enjoy our bakery inspired cinnamon rolls right in your own home. And the best news is Cinnabon is just getting started.


Each Ingredient Tells a Story

Makara® Cinnamon

Under the canopy of the tropical forests in Indonesia, the cassia tree produces the sweet, luscious flavor that is exclusively known as Cinnabon® Makara® Cinnamon. It creates a one-of-a-kind experience you can smell and taste.

Fresh-baked Dough

After months of trials, and mounds of ingredients, we found the ideal recipe for our signature dough. Soft, sweet and perfect for baking, it has become the foundation for all our irresistible baked treats.

Waves of Frosting

It’s often been imitated but never replicated. The smooth, Ooey-Gooey™ topping of Cinnabon® cream cheese frosting adds another depth of flavor. Painted all over our rolls, it’s a final layer to perfection.

Coffees

It started with our Mochalatta Chill®, a coffee drink wrapped in blankets of chocolate flavor. From there, we expanded to include the rich, sweet Arabica bean coffees and iced coffees to perfectly complement our Cinnabon® flavors.


Organizations We Support

Our mission is to spread warmth – not only in our Bakeries, but also in our community. Just as we reward our guests with fresh baked flavor, Cinnabon® has partnered with several charities that reward deserving men and women for their selfless efforts. Our philosophy is to serve those who serve others. Keeping true to the values of the brand, Cinnabon® proudly supports Operation Gratitude and The DAISY Foundation, among other philanthropic organizations.
