Just by visiting our website, you’ve already taken the first step! Stay as long as you like, click around and get a head start on gathering information about franchising with us.

We’d be also happy to set up a time to discuss your goals and give you an overview on franchising with HoneyBaked Ham. Please feel free to fill out our contact form or call the Franchise Development team at 866-968-7424. We look forward to hearing from you.

The initial franchise and development fee is $30,000. For each additional location, the fee drops to $20,000. Including the franchise fee, the initial overall investment ranges from $299,200 to $546,300 to open a store in an in-line leased space. These costs vary and are outlined in our Franchise Disclosure Document, but you can read a little more about it here.

We require a net worth of at least $500,000 and a minimum of $250,000 in liquid assets for a multi-unit investment, and a net worth of $350,000 with $100,000 in liquid assets for a single unit, as well as a strong credit history.

Generally, no. Franchisees typically secure their own financing. We’re on the SBA Registry, and many of our franchisees have received funding through local lenders and/or an SBA loan but ultimately, that’s up to you.

Yes. Your success – and ours – is tied to your growth and profitability. Many of our current franchisees have more than one store. We also offer a multi-unit development plan if you’re looking to dive right in.

We provide extensive training and support. New franchisees must complete three-to-four weeks of hands-on training before they can open their store. For more info, take a look at our training and support page or contact us.

The time between your initial interest call and the opening of your store depends on a lot of different variables, but location is the most telling factor. We estimate it will take three to six months after signing your lease to open your store. We’ll advise and help support you through the whole process but, of course, it all hinges on your own proactive involvement in the site selection, lease negotiation, build-out and construction processes with our real estate and development team.

Absolutely. You’ll be assigned a Franchise Business Consultant (FBC), who is familiar with all facets of the business. They’ll continue to mentor and help you throughout your tenure as a franchisee. In addition, we offer a variety of resources through our Corporate Service Center and an internal website that acts as a central location for marketing materials, training documents, communications and other resources with just a few clicks.

Restaurant and/or retail experience is a benefit but is not required.

We’re looking for passionate, self-motivated candidates with some business savvy. We’ll make sure you get the training and know-how you need to succeed as a HoneyBaked Ham franchisee, but it doesn’t hurt to have a strong background in:

  • Financial management
  • Outside Sales
  • People management

You’ll find all the details of the approval process outlined here.
