The scoop: Officials with Schlotzsky’s corporate offices last week joined franchise owner Cynde Whitson on a tour of potential seawall sites for the popular sandwich shop concept. The island Schlotzsky’s will be a third for Whitson, who owns franchises in League City and Texas City.
Corporate officials must approve whichever building Whitson chooses to ensure it conforms with Schlotzsky’s standards and branding.
Whitson said Monday she wants to secure the site before divulging more details. But she did confirm she’s bringing three concepts under one roof to the island.
Along with a Schlotzsky’s, she’ll open a Cinnabon franchise, famous for oven-hot cinnamon rolls, and a Carvel Ice Cream shop.
There are 800 Cinnabon franchises worldwide. Carvel, a 75-year-old name in ice cream, operates 500 franchises and is best known for “Fudgie the Whale” and “Cookie Puss” cakes. Schlotzsky’s, of course, is known for its sandwiches, pizzas, salads and soups. Atlanta-based Focus Brands Inc. is the franchisor and operator of Carvel, Cinnabon and Schlotzsky’s.
