Sandwich shop now offering Cinnabon in Veradale

Included in the advantages of working with a national franchise is the chance to pick up a second product line when when the company you’re working with adds another business.

That’s what’s helping Veradale businessman Bruce Brown go from a reliable Schlotzsky’s provider to offering Cinnabons to his morning or afternoon customers.

Parent company Focus Brands acquired Schlotzsky’s in 2006 and has since picked up several other brands. Cinnabon is one of them. As part of the Focus strategy, its sandwich shop franchisees can now offer Cinnabons out of the same location.

In the past month Brown has added a drive-thru to his business, at 901 N. Sullivan Road in Spokane Valley, letting morning customers get Cinnabon orders on the way to work. He’s also sells them the rest of the day.  

Historical footnote: the very first Cinnabon store or outlet opened on Dec. 4, 1985, in Federal Way.
