Cinnabon was bought by AFC Enterprises, Inc. in 1998 for $65 million.[6] In 2004, AFC Enterprises, Inc., sold Cinnabon for $30.3 million to FOCUS Brands, Inc., which is owned by the Atlanta-based private equity firm Roark Capital Group.[7][8] The headquarters moved to Greater Atlanta in 1999.[2]

The first Cinnabon opened on December 4, 1985 in Seattle, Washington in Sea Tac Mall. Cinnabon was an offshoot of the Seattle Based Restaurants Unlimited restaurant chain run by Rich Komen. Mr. Komen wanted to create the worlds most "perfect" cinnamon roll, eventually hiring Jerilyn Brusseau to finalize the iconic recipe. The first bakery began by serving only its Cinnabon Classic cinnamon roll. Cinnabon's first franchise-operated store opened in August 1986 in Philadelphia. In 1991, the first Cinnabon store outside a mall was opened in Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport. Cinnabon stores today can also be found in military bases, universities, rapid transit stations, casinos, and amusement parks.
