ICYMI: Honey Baked Ham coming to Cullman


CULLMAN, Ala. – The Honey Baked Ham Company this week announced it has signed an agreement with existing franchisee, Andy Gaghagen, to bring the store to Cullman.   

Having been a Honey Baked owner for over 10 years, Gaghagen has enjoyed building relationships with the communities across his other locations in Georgia and Alabama, the company said in a press release. He now has 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,” the release said.

“Over the past decade, I have been contributing to the growth of Honey Baked and am thrilled to continue expanding alongside the brand,” said Gaghagen. “I am deeply committed to upholding the tradition of excellence that defines the brand and look forward to expanding the Honey Baked 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.”

“Andy has been an exceptional franchisee who truly embodies what our brand stands for,” said Jim Hannan, SVP of operations at Honey Baked. “These additional locations in Cullman and Dothan are in great hands, and I’m eager to see the positive impact they bring to the community. It has been a pleasure to watch Andy grow within our franchisee network and we’re confident these new stores will be successful under his ownership.”
