The Honey Baked Ham Company recently announced its latest signed agreement with existing franchisee, Andy Gaghagen, to bring two new stores to Cullman and Dothan, Alabama. 

Having been a HoneyBaked owner for over 10 years, Gaghagen has enjoyed building relationships with the communities across his other locations in Georgia and Alabama. With the addition of these two new stores, Gaghagen’s HoneyBaked portfolio now includes seven locations. He prides himself in being a hands-on owner, working closely with managers and staff, in addition to his participation in the local Chamber of Commerce and volunteer opportunities.

“Over the past decade, I have been contributing to the growth of HoneyBaked and am thrilled to continue expanding alongside the brand,” says Gaghagen. “I am deeply committed to upholding the tradition of excellence that defines the brand and look forward to expanding the HoneyBaked name into these two key cities in Alabama. My existing stores continue to thrive in their respected communities and I anticipate similar success at these upcoming locations.”

With delicious offerings like their complete meals featuring signature glazed ham and turkey breast, a variety of heat & serve sides and desserts, as well as new Take & Bake Sliders and Biscuits, HoneyBaked has cemented itself as the industry-leading forerunner for celebrations and everyday occasions.
