Schlotzsky’s-Cinnabon-Carvel picks location for Galveston

The scoop: The suspense is over for island Schlotzsky’s fans. After months of scouting sites, Cynde Whitson has settled on where she’ll open Schlotzsky’s, Carvel Ice Cream and Cinnabon franchises under one roof.

Whitson will open the concepts at 500 Seawall Blvd. in the space formerly occupied by Lasso a Latte Coffee Shop, which closed in February. The space is within the Piazza Blanca Shopping Center. Whitson also plans to lease a secondary space at the shopping center for baking and storage.

Whitson had been in talks to lease space at 1228 Seawall Blvd. that Capital Q BBQ left vacant nearly a year ago. But the issue came down to a drive-through. Benno’s on the Beach is a neighbor and there were worries that a drive-through would eat up too much parking space. The Piazza Blanca site already has a drive-through window.

Schlotzsky’s is known for its sandwiches, pizzas, salads and soups, while Cinnabon is famous for oven-hot cinnamon rolls. Carvel, a 75-year-old name in ice cream, is best known for “Fudgie the Whale” and “Cookie Puss” cakes.

Atlanta-based Focus Brands Inc. is the franchiser and operator of Carvel, Cinnabon and Schlotzsky’s.

Whitson, who owns Schlotzsky’s and Cinnabon franchises in League City and Texas City, is aiming for Dec. 17 opening of the island concepts.

  1. I do not drop many remarks, however after reading through a few of the responses on
    this page Schlotzskys-Cinnabon-Carvel picks location for Galveston Schlotzsky’s. I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay.
    Could it be just me or does it look as if like a few of the remarks appear
    like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional
    sites, I’d like to keep up with you. Could you post a list of the complete urls of all your social community pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
