Cinnamon roll lovers in McKinney are about to get the icing on the cake.
Cinnaholic, a gourmet vegan cinnamon roll chain, is set for its grand opening in McKinney on July 24. The store at the McKinney Towne Crossing shopping center will be the chain’s third Dallas-Fort Worth location, with another in Addison set to follow.
The store will open its doors at 11 a.m. for its grand opening, staying open until 9 p.m., with social distancing measures in place to guard against the spread of COVID-19.
“It has always been my dream to own a bakery,” general manager Alex Loper wrote in a statement. “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.”
Cinnaholic allows customers to pick from 19 different frosting flavors and 24 toppings. You could make a cinnamon roll with peanut butter frosting topped with peanut butter cups or get a little more adventurous and use the chai frosting, perhaps topped with strawberries.
The chain, which serves 100% vegan products, started in 2010 in Berkeley, California, and started franchising after a 2014 appearance on Shark Tank, the TV show on which Mark Cuban and other investors take pitches from entrepreneurs.
The new Cinnaholic will be at 8930 Highway 121, Suite 570, in McKinney.
