At the Honey Baked Ham Co.®, serving the highest-quality products and creating the industry’s best customer experience has been our tradition for 60+ years running. Now, with 400+ stores nationwide and counting, our franchise opportunity gives passionate, business-minded people the chance to create a tradition of their own, serving America’s favorite holiday meal – spiral-sliced, sweet-glazed Honey Baked Ham – and much, much more.
Our signature Bone-In Half Ham has made us a holiday hit coast-to-coast, 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.
Signature Retail – Including premium hams, turkeys & roasts, traditional heat-and-serve sides, delicious desserts, and signature sauces & dips

As long as you’ve got a strong work ethic and a willingness to learn from our experience within our proven system, we’ll help you get there.

Our Franchisees Say it Best
“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.”

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.”

“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.”
