US chain Cinnabon finds its Aussie home

Iconic American bakery-franchise Cinnabon is set for a 2019 launch in Australia through Carl’s Jr.’s local vehicle Bansal Group.

Gaurav Bansal, Bansal Group co-owner said the latest announcement has garnered an overwhelmingly positive response from Cinnabon fans, with location requests already coming in.

“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.

“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.”

Since launching Carl’s Jr. a year ago, Bansal Group has expanded the burger chain’s portfolio rapidly, opening six freestanding locations across South-East Queensland, with a seventh opening slated for later this month.

“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.”
