For many, the American Dream of business ownership looks like calling the shots, being your own boss, and having more space and freedom in your personal life to do the things you truly enjoy. In short, less work, more play! Read on to learn how HoneyBaked has the retail food franchise opportunity that could cater to your personal and professional goals.
HoneyBaked’s Franchise Operations Meet Your Needs
We’ve created a roadmap for you, but like any business, your participation and engagement as an owner are crucial to the success of your business. Many of our franchisees are owner-operators who spend their days working both in their business and on their business. Part of what HoneyBaked franchisees love about our opportunity is the ease of our operations that helps lighten the day-to-day load.
How Our Retail Food Franchise Concept Works
Reasonable Working Hours
With the exception of the holidays, most stores are open during business hours, but not early in the morning or late into the night. This allows more time for your family and personal life. Many HoneyBaked franchisees are also active community members, and their stores’ simple franchise operations provide them more time for community involvement.
Minimal Labor Requirements
Outside of what we call the “busy season” which includes holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, Easter and Fourth of July, a typical Honey Baked Ham Co.® store only requires 5-10 total employees – with just 2 or 3 full-timers. We’ve also created an easy-to-follow process to help you train them!
No Cooking at All!
All HoneyBaked products, including hams, arrive at the store fully cooked. You’ll need some aluminum foil and a heavy-duty blowtorch to seal each ham with its signature shell of sweet, crunchy glaze – and we’ll train you on exactly how to do that, too. Aside from that, no deep fryers or greasy cooktop required!
