Bakery offers One of a Kind Vegan Cinnamon Rolls with the Help of SBA Funding

Cinnaholic Owners Nicki and Ben Reedy

Nicki and Ben Reedy of San Antonio, Texas, have a love for delicious food, and they both have a bit of a sweet tooth. They fell in love with Cinnaholic’s concept of gourmet plant-based cinnamon rolls. Cinnaholic was first featured on Shark Tank and has quickly multiplied across the United States and Canada. They envisioned sharing these one-of-a-kind cinnamon rolls by opening their own franchised bakeries in and around San Antonio. With a growing family of their own, they needed help to bring these dreams to fruition.

Nicki and Ben received an SBA 7(a) loan in 2019 to cover the cost of construction, equipment, and start-up costs. Without the SBA 7(a) program, it is unlikely they would have been able to start this business. 

Nicki and Ben Reedy opened their first Cinnaholic in Southtown San Antonio in February 2020. They have partnered with businesses and charitable organizations around town to serve their community. They plan to open a second store in Alamo Ranch in late 2022. In addition to the original construction loan, Nicki and Ben were able to take advantage of the PPP Covid relief program. As a result, they were able to keep all employees employed during that challenging period of time.

From the President/Owner

“Nicki and I are grateful for the opportunity to bring Cinnaholic to the San Antonio area.  Without the help of Broadway Bank and the SBA program, this business probably wouldn’t exist. Thankfully we were able to utilize this program and have been able to provide a fun environment for employees and guests.”
