www.honeybakedonline.com It all started with the vision and drive of one man-the founder and our grandfather, Harry J. Hoenselaar. While working in the meat industry in the mid-1930s, our grandpa developed a unique curing, cooking and smoking process for a high-quality bone-in ham that featured a mouthwatering sweet and crunchy glaze. His unique sense of inspiration also led to a more convenient way to serve ham - a machine that spiral sliced delicately-smoked ham around the bone. He perfected his machine and his ham over a span of several years and eventually was granted patents in 1949 and 1952 for the first spiral-slicing machine and for the spiral-slicing method. In 1957, he leveraged a second mortgage on his home and, with only $500, opened the very first HoneyBaked Ham Company store in Detroit. From that initial store opening, the famous taste and convenience of HoneyBaked Hams began to spread as Harry's four daughters and their families began to open HoneyBaked Ham Stores across the country.
