Circle Centre wants Cinnabon out of mall

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Cinnabon bakery in Circle Centre is in danger of being bounced from its second-floor location.

Circle Centre Mall LLC has filed suit against Cinnaworks LLC, a franchisee of Atlanta-based Cinnabon, accusing it of failing to pay rent at the downtown Indianapolis mall.

Circle Centre, managed by locally based Simon Property Group Inc., said in its Aug. 23 complaint that it is entitled to immediate possession of the Cinnabon space, but the owner “wrongfully and unlawfully continues to retain possession.”

Anaheim, Calif.-based Cinnaworks signed its current 10-year lease with the mall on Sept. 28, 2005, and occupies 1,272 square feet near the Artsgarden.

Cinnaworks pays $81,016.18 in annual rent, or roughly $6,751 per month, according to the lease. The mall receives a percentage of sales if annual revenue exceeds $1 million, the lease said.

Circle Centre said in its complaint that it declared the lease in default Aug. 3, and demanded that Cinnaworks pay back rent by Aug. 18, which it failed to do.

The mall did not specify in its suit how much it is owed in rent.

Cinnabon was founded in Seattle in 1985 and operates more than 770 franchised cinnamon roll bakeries.

  • Bad Headline
    That is really a bad headline for this article. How about "Cinnabon facing eviction" or "Circle Centre wants Cinnabon out of the mall for failure to pay"?

  3. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

  4. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

  5. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.
