THE HONEYBAKED HAM CONCEPT

Next Page: The Customer Experience

A 60-YEAR LEGACY OF DELICIOUSNESS, INNOVATION AND FAMILY TRADITION.

HoneyBaked Ham offers a completely unique franchise opportunity. Part specialty-food retail, part delicious lunchtime destination, part catering and part corporate and individual gifting, our business operates year-round with peaks around the holidays.

WHERE WE BEGAN

Harry Hoenselaar invented the spiral-slicer and belief in his machine changed the way we all enjoy the world’s best ham and other delicious family meal favorites.

  • NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION

    Back in the 1940s Mr. Hoenselaar worked in a butcher shop in Detroit and invented things around the house for his wife and kids. During his work at the butcher shop he noticed that the customers struggled to carve bone-in hams. As a result of all this, Mr. Hoenselaar invented the first hand-operated spiral slicing machine, which he patented in 1949.

  • AND INVENTION IS THE MOTHER OF THE BEST HAM IN AMERICA

    In 1957, Mr. Hoenselaar opened the first HoneyBaked Ham store on Fenkle Street in Detroit, Michigan, where he sold the only ham that was pre- sliced in a patented spiral design. Not satisfied with selling the easiest ham to eat, Harry also smoked the highest-quality bone-in hams for hours over a special blend of hardwood chips and added a secret recipe sweet glaze to make his top-quality hams more tender and flavorful than anything else available on the market then, or today.

  • KEEPING UP THE SPIRIT OF INNOVATION

    We take this innovative spirit to heart at HoneyBaked Ham and are constantly looking for ways to improve our products and systems to help our franchisees grow their businesses and ensure that customers continue to love our products.
