HoneyBaked presents a unique restaurant franchise opportunity for entrepreneurs who are looking to become part of our 60-year legacy. Whether you are a single-unit franchise owner or you are interested in owning multiple units, there are many benefits to joining the Honey Baked Ham tradition. Keep reading to find out which path may be more suitable for you.


HoneyBaked has been a holiday standard for decades and our mouthwatering hand-glazed half-hams are unlike anything else on the market, which is why customers keep coming back for more. As a single-unit owner, you can take your time growing your restaurant franchise, and apply a more hands-on approach to how you run your business. Oftentimes, this can reduce the number of staff you may need, which can ultimately save you money.

If you’re a first-time franchise owner, single-unit ownership can give you the experience you need before you consider expanding into multi-unit ownership. Since franchise ownership is undoubtedly a big investment, beginning with a single unit can also take off some of the pressure you may feel to quickly grow your business. Of course, regardless if you own one unit or multiple units, you can expect the HoneyBaked team to provide the guidance and ongoing support you need to thrive in the retail franchise space.


As a multi-unit owner, you won’t focus as much on day-to-day operations. Instead, your attention will be turned more towards the growth of your restaurant franchise. Although multi-unit ownership obviously requires a larger investment, it can potentially offer greater stability and increased chances for growing a thriving business. When done strategically, owning more units can result in increased sales volume.

Although it can seem daunting to own multiple units, keep in mind that you’ll still have the ongoing support of our knowledgeable corporate team to help you troubleshoot any problems you may encounter as you expand your business. Regardless if you own one or several units, we’re here to help you connect with your community and will provide local and national marketing support to get the word out and help you reach customers.


Depending on your specific business goals and capabilities, one of these options may be more suitable for you. After achieving your goals as a single-unit owner, you may set your sights on multi-unit ownership. Whatever the future holds, know that our team will be there to guide you every step of the way.


If owning a retail franchise with Honey Baked Ham sounds like a yummy proposition to you, don’t hesitate to schedule a call with our team to request more information about what it takes to get started on the process. Whether you are ready for multi-unit ownership or want to focus on opening a single-unit restaurant franchise, we are excited to hear from motivated franchise owners like you.
