Honey Baked Ham embodies the word opportunity. As a franchisee with us, you can enjoy many unique advantages when you join our team.

Continue reading to learn more about the advantages of owning a Honey Baked Ham franchise.


As a family-owned business, HoneyBaked understands the importance of spending time with your family and connecting with your community. That’s why, except on holidays, most HoneyBaked stores are open during business hours and not early in the day or late into the evening. As a result, franchisees can have the time they need to bond with their family and remain engaged and involved with their community.

Our franchisees can maintain such reasonable hours because all our products, including hams, arrive at every location fully cooked. You’ll need some aluminum foil and a blowtorch to seal each ham with its signature shell of sweet, crunchy glaze. However, you’ll have no need for deep fryers or greasy cooktops to serve the deliciously tasty products we’re known for. Moreover, while a typical Honey Baked Ham Co.® store requires 5 to 10 employees, only 2 or 3 will be full-time during non-holiday periods.


Running your Honey Baked Ham franchise will feel like second nature to you once you go through our comprehensive training, which consists of 3 phases. You’ll train with our corporate staff and Franchise Business Leaders, receive hands-on training at a Certified Franchise Training Store, and continue to access shared resources and ongoing support once your store opens.

Since the holiday season is our busiest time of year, you’ll also receive specialized holiday training to ensure you’re ready to keep up with the demand for our incredible meals. Additionally, to ensure your customers are always receiving the very best products, we provide purchasing and supplier coordination and quality assurance, as well as food safety and inspection support. Finally, we want you to enjoy the fruits of your labor and will walk you through every step of opening and growing your restaurant franchise, so you can do that.


If you’re ready to enjoy a slice of Honey Baked Ham’s delicious benefits, do not hesitate to reach out to us to learn more about this unique business opportunity. We’re looking for franchisees who share our values, especially when in serving others and loving what they do. Schedule a call with us today to request more information about what it takes to own a restaurant franchise with us, so you can get started on opening your Honey Baked Ham location.
