Time to get rolling

with Cinnabon

Letting the good times roll, children got to make their cinnamon rolls at Cinnabon outlets in Dubai Mall,

Ibn Battuta Mall and Mercato Mall from February 25 to March 11 and at Khalidiya Mall, Main Atrium

from April 10 - 23. A wooden and stylish fence was designed for the event at the Khalidiya Mall which

included a rolling and baking kiosk, a registration station, a coloring kiosk, face painiting and a stage

to give away the certificates.

The kids had some serious fun as they got to spread, roll, sprinkle and bake their very own Cinnabon roll.

With the help of Cinnabon staff, children spread the dough, smearing it with chocolate and cinnamon.

They rolled the dough into the famous Cinnabon rolls before they are sent for baking.

To make it all more fun, children took home a certificate, along with a Cinnabon apron and bandana

and a ‘Buy One Get One Free’ Nutella Minibon voucher for each participating kid. More than 1000 kids

participated in the event across the malls.

day by providing them a combination of 200 bites of chocolate and classic flavor minibons for

the Lebanese stand. Cinnabon decorated the rolls with a Lebanese flag sticker on a toothpick. Each stall

was hosted by students, parents, and staff alike, who were only too happy to share what their country

has to offer.

Sharing, Self-Service and Automation, Knowledge Management, Groups, Task Lists and many others,

this intranet is all set to change our daily work routine as we know it. Imagine finding all HR forms in one

place to download and apply, while tracking the status of application right from your Company desktop
