HoneyBaked Ham is a company started in 1957 by Harry J. Hoenselaar in Detroit, Michigan. In his basement, he developed a special way to cook, slice and glaze ham. Hoenselaar invented the spiral slicer and marketed his idea to various companies. When no company was interested enough in his spiral slicer, he decided to open his own ham store.
Hoenselaar died in 1974 from ALS and left his business in equal parts to each of his daughters. As of December 2010, there were over 40 corporate HoneyBaked Ham stores across the country, as well as some 400 franchise locations. The family run business is operated out of Loveland, Ohio. Offerings at HoneyBaked Ham stores include the traditional spiral cut hams, turkeys, sandwiches, side dishes, and desserts.  One specific offering includes delicious Box Lunches in a tasty carrying case, which are great for office meetings, picnics, school functions, festivals, and gatherings. HoneyBaked Ham also offers a variety of recipes which can be found on their website.
In 2004, The Honeybaked Ham Company stopped producing their own hams and instead purchase hams produced by John Morrell Meats and Tyson Meats.
