Build-your-own cinnamon roll company Cinnaholic is making its D.C. area debut early next year.

The expansion-minded vegan bakery, which was discovered on ABC’s entrepreneurial show Shark Tank in 2014, just signed a 1,200-square-foot lease at 321 Ellington Boulevard in downtown Gaithersburg. It’s the second Maryland location for the budding brand, which opened in Baltimore earlier this summer.

Since its start in Berkeley, Calif. in 2010, 135 locations have popped up across the U.S. and Canada.

Its customizable cinnamon rolls come with over 30 frosting flavors and toppings to choose from, with all ingredients free of dairy, egg, and cholesterol. No more D.C. area locations are on Cinnaholic’s radar for now, according to its tenant rep firm H&R Retail.

Cinnaholic will join Harris Teeter, Ruth’s Chris, and &pizza at Gaithersburg’s 250,000-square-foot Downtown Crown retail project.
