Dish Hospitality Private Limited (DHPL), the foodservice arm of Wadhawan Group, has opened its second Cinnabon bakery in India at Mumbai. This 550 sq.ft outlet — located at the upmarket Pali naka in Bandra Cinnabon — will serve the chain’s iconic cinnamon rolls, made with pure vegetable margarine, cream cheese frosting and the legendary makara cinnamon from Indonesia. “The customisation is that all our offerings are eggless. This is the only Cinnabon outlet in the world to offer this option,” Navin Madan, brand manager, Cinnabon told IndiaRetailing.
Two more outlets – one in Juhu, Mumbai and another in Select CityWalk, Delhi — will open shortly and will entail an investment of Rs 1.5 crore each. “By March 2011 we plan to launch 10 outlets between Delhi and Mumbai and then take the brand to Pune, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad,” Madan adds.
DHPL has plans to open 150 take-away and quick servic Cinnabon outlets across India.
