HoneyBaked Ham Wants to Move to Easton Area

Ohio-based cafe/retailer is looking for a franchisee to set up shop in the Easton area.

The HoneyBaked Ham company, a chain of food retailers/cafes, wants to relocate to the Easton area.

It would be the business' first Lehigh Valley location since its Whitehall store closed last year, and one four new Pennsylvania operations (along with Erie, Pottstown and Reading).

"We've had a lot of growth in the state recently," said Melissa McFarlin, Director of Franchise Development for the company.

HoneyBaked Ham was founded in 1957 in Michigan by Harry J. Hoenselaar, who pioneered the company's signature glaze and spiral slicer.

Today it has 450 locations around the country, 264 run by the corporation and another 186 franchisees. The businesses provide a mix of retail, selling hams, turkeys and side dishes, as well as a cafe and catering component.

The Easton area store would be run by a franchisee, assuming one comes forward, McFarlin said. She said it's too soon to tell where in the region the store would be based.
