"HoneyBaked Ham has allowed us and our entire family to truly enjoy all of the benefits and rewards of owning a franchise. The hours are perfect for our lifestyle, the support from the Franchisor has been superb, and the local Community involvement is absolutely incredible.
Not only do we enjoy the freedom to have our own business, it has challenged us to become better leaders, listeners, and hopefully better people from the experience.

We couldn't have made a better decision."


more retail than restaurant

Our food and restaurant franchise opportunities operate more like a retail store than a restaurant. Better hours, fewer employees and no grills and no frying! These are just a few of the reasons owners love franchising with HoneyBaked.

Reasonable Hours

With the exception of the holidays, stores are open during business hours, but not early in the morning or late into the night. This allows time for family and community involvement.

Minimal Labor

A typical HoneyBaked store requires 5-10 employees — with only 2 or 3 full time — during non-holiday periods.

No Cooking

All products, including hams, arrive at the store fully cooked. No frying or greasy cooktop required!

HoneyBaked customers are loyal.

Many have grown up with HoneyBaked as a holiday staple. They feel good about feeding HoneyBaked products to their families. And with a higher average household income, they appreciate and expect quality.

What does this mean for our franchise owners?

HoneyBaked customers are willing to pay for the premium products we serve and sell.



Carole Dunlap – Fort Collins & Greeley, CO

"As a franchisee, I’m in the position to benefit from the advantages of being a small-business owner and the perks of working with a well-established brand name.

Being a franchisee is the best of both worlds – you can be creative, entrepreneurial and independent; at the same time, you don’t have to completely start from scratch – you are part of a larger system.

I love that HoneyBaked Ham has many ways to generate revenue besides their premium hams. They offer a variety of premium proteins along with desserts, sides, lunch, and catering that all helps with the bottom line. The strength of HoneyBaked Brand cannot be denied. The products, leadership, support, and systems are outstanding!

I have owned other successful Franchise’s over the past 20 years. With that said, by far HoneyBaked Ham has my best interests for a successful and profitable business."


Why HoneyBaked?




Known for its remarkable flavor and one-of-a-kind sweet crunchy glaze, the spiral-sliced Honey Baked Ham is our core product. Each ham is hand-selected for unmatched quality, slow-smoked for 24 hours for superior tenderness, and arrives at the store spiral sliced and fully cooked. Hams are fire-glazed in the stores and sold ready to serve.

HoneyBaked food and restaurant franchise opportunities also offer other premium meats, traditional heat-and-serve sides, and delicious desserts to complete a perfect meal. In addition to ham, our center-of-the-plate offerings include HoneyBaked

smoked and roasted turkey breast, fully cooked whole turkey, pot roast, BBQ roast and ribs. These are complemented by our mouth-watering side dishes — cinnamon apple slices, sweet potato soufflé, au gratin potatoes, Yukon mashed potatoes, broccoli rice casserole, macaroni and cheese, and more. Our delicious desserts include southern pecan, pumpkin and apple caramel walnut pies, cheesecake, coffee cake and carrot cake.
