Rock Hill, SC: Nancy and Grady Love

"We enjoy the flexibility of operating our HoneyBaked Ham Co. and Café. Maintaining the family connection was big for us, so we wanted to open a franchise where our four children could participate and where we could be home nights and on Sundays. The whole system has been great to be a part of and has been built in such a way that we have the opportunity to be successful in business while maintaining personal and family quality time as well." “The HoneyBaked Ham Co. and Café offers many opportunities to satisfy customers with our broad product line. Not only do we offer ham or turkey for holiday occasions, we also offer other great year-round business-revenue generators, including lunch in our Café, catering platters and corporate gifting to help fill in sales between the seasonal highs.

“I’m pleased with the business and the support I receive. It’s business-like and I like that. I like ‘The Hub,’ the intranet site for communication and resources, and the strong marketing programs. Our field business consultant is always there and provides lots of support. Our success is getting out and sharing our product and message with other business people. We have a great product, so why stand behind the counter all the time? We enjoy promoting our catering, lunch and gifting side of the business.”

“So many people build their holiday around HoneyBaked. We often feel part of the family. It’s a tradition, and our customers trust our brand.”


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



Paul White– Portland, Beaverton & Salem

“I initially invested in the HoneyBaked Ham Co. and Café franchise as a great way to invest in my family’s future, and have since been rewarded with not only a rich product, but also a rich support system from everyone in the HoneyBaked family. My experience has been great and continues to meet my high expectations day in and day out. The product is also something that I can believe in, as it is an incredible, high-value product that I feel 100 percent, wholeheartedly comfortable recommending to anyone.”


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.
