Cinnabon has announced the location of the bakery chain’s new Australian location. The US chain will open in South East Queensland and will be run by the Bansal Group.
“Cinnabon is one of the most beloved brands in the world, and its cinnamon scrolls are world-famous, so we’re so delighted to bring them to Australia,” said Bansal Group co-founder Gaurav Bansal. “We knew there would be a strong market for Cinnabon in Australia, but we’re already amazed by the fan base around the country begging us to open in their city and their huge love for this brand.”
The brand was founded in Seattle in 1985 and currently operates around 1,200 locations worldwide. It is best known for its cinnamon rolls, as well as other baked goods and drinks. The South East Queensland store will be the first, but the plan is to expand into Sydney and Melbourne in due course.
“There’s a lot involved with every opening, so we’re doing our homework and will only open stores when we’ve found a great location, but the plan is to open 50 stores in the next three years,” says Bansal. “Our home is in South East Queensland, so of course our first location will be there later this year, and we hope to follow that with a Sydney store.”
