Our Family Tradition: Making the World’s Best Ham

Honey Baked Ham spiral sliced ham and sidesOur signature Bone-In Half Ham is what we’re famous for. Only the top 10% of hams go on to become Honey Baked Hams – smoked over a special blend of hardwood chips for up to 24 hours, spiral-sliced, hand-glazed and wrapped in our iconic gold foil.

And if you’ve ever visited a HoneyBaked store around the holidays, you’ve probably seen the lines of people trailing out the door and wrapping around the block, waiting for the must-have centerpiece of their holiday feast.

But we’re more than just ham for the holidays. Our franchisees benefit from an array of products and services that help keep business flowing.

The Honey Baked Ham Legacy
Honey Baked Ham Marketing

“HoneyBaked has allowed us and our entire family to truly enjoy all of the benefits and rewards of owning a franchise. The hours are perfect for our lifestyle, the support from the Franchisor has been superb, and the local community involvement is absolutely incredible. Not only do we enjoy the freedom to have our own business, it has challenged us to become better leaders, listeners, and hopefully better people from the experience. We couldn’t have made a better decision.”

David & Kathy Crawford

Franchisees in Richmond, VA

“As a franchisee, I’m in the position to benefit from the advantages of being a small-business owner and the perks of working with a well-established brand name. Being a franchisee is the best of both worlds – you can be creative, entrepreneurial and independent; at the same time, you don’t have to completely start from scratch – you are part of a larger system. I have owned other successful Franchise’s over the past 20 years. With that said, by far HoneyBaked Ham has my best interests for a successful and profitable business.”

Carole Dunlap

Franchisee in Fort Collins & Greeley, CO

“The field support team is tremendous. My field consultant cares about where I’m going as an individual franchisee. My consultant is hands-on, provides great support and helps resolve any issues. They recognize my strengths as an independent owner. They have a consultative approach and want to help me grow my business.”
