THE EARLY YEARS
In 1936, Harry J. Hoenselaar built a prototype of what was to become the first spiral-slicing machine. By 1944, he filed his first patent. It wasn't until 1957 that Harry opened the first HoneyBaked Store in Detroit, Michigan. Officially bringing together his patented spiral slicer with The Honey Baked Ham Company. The Honey Baked Ham Company continues to be a family-owned business and serve customers online and at more than 400 year round retail locations in 40 states across the United States.
After six decades of serving The World’s Best Ham™, The Honey Baked Ham Company is entering into a new era while still honoring our heritage. We are excited for new menu innovations and elevating the customers' experience as we look forward to the next six decades.
