Just months after the country went through a dramatic revolution, Tripoli is welcoming Cinnabon, the first U.S. franchise to open in Libya.
Mike Shattuck, president of the Atlanta-based company, Focus Brands International, tells CNN there are plans to open Cinnabon outlets in Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco as well.
Shattuck said the 7,500-square-foot Cinnabon store is the first of 10 planned locations set to open in Libya over the next four years.
