We're here to bring some desperately needed good news during these pandemic times, and it involves cinnamon rolls: Dallas-Fort Worth will see two new locations of Cinnaholic, the gourmet cinnamon roll bakery chain, opening in the area.
Huzzah. The two locations are as follows:
- McKinney, at 8930 TX-121, #570, which opened on July 24.
- Addison at 5100 Belt Line Rd., #532, which will open in September.
Cinnaholic gained national fame after the company was featured on Shark Tank, then began franchising in 2014. There are now more than 40 locations open in 15 states and Canada. They're not stopping there: Their goal is 60 locations by the end of 2020.
They're known for offering a cinnamon roll experience unlike any other because it's customizable. Customers choose from a variety of frosting flavors and toppings to create their own cinnamon roll experience.
Cinnaholic is also plant-based, meaning that all ingredients are animal-free and free of dairy, lactose, eggs, and cholesterol. One for the vegans.
In addition to cinnamon rolls, the bakery serves made-from-scratch brownies, cookies, baby buns, hot, and cold brew coffee.
The owners of the Addison location are Ana and Sami Reynoso, who have backgrounds in sales and customer service.
"Our customers can always expect a one-of-a-kind experience with Cinnaholic," Ana says in a statement. "Sami and I are eager to share such a delicious and allergy-friendly dessert, and bring new jobs to the community."
Alex Loper is general manager of the Cinnaholic in McKinney. She's a longtime customer with nearly 10 years in accounting, business, and customer service.
"It has always been my dream to own a bakery," Loper says. "I'm eager to share such a delicious and allergy-friendly dessert with the community. The concept is so unique and will serve a growing demographic."
The two new shops join two DFW locations already open, in Richardson and Fort Worth.
