Canadian cinnamon roll bakery brand CinnZeo has opened its first franchise at the Spindles Shopping Centre in Oldham, Lancashire.

The 55 sq metre bakery-cum café outlet will sell freshly-baked cinnamon rolls and there are plans to roll out a further six within the next year. Possible locations are The Arndale Shopping Centre in Manchester and Ashton-Under-Lyme.

The mastermind behind the launch of CinnZeo in the UK is Deji Adetujoye, who already owns three franchised Subway outlets. Visitors to the new shop in Oldham will be able to watch the staff at work, rolling the dough and baking its range of products, which include a CinnaRoll - a cinnamon roll topped with cream cheese frosting.

Franchised outlets have already been established in Canada, USA, Asia, the Middle East and South America.
