About Franchise

The History of Honey Dew Donuts:

Dick Bowen, founder and president of Honey Dew Associates, Inc. always had a passion and taste for donuts. As a kid, he followed his dad to work at a local donut shop in West Roxbury, Massachusetts. Throughout high school he worked at several coffee and donut shops, dreaming of the day he would own his own where the local community could gather to "enjoy the local flavor."

In 1973, Dick's dream came true when he opened the first Honey Dew Donuts®shop in downtown Mansfield, Massachusetts. He quickly became a local favorite, offering a friendly smile and the finest donuts and coffee around. He lived the promise "Always Fresh, Always Good" and his customers responded by coming over and over again.

Building a chain of coffee and donut shops was never a part of Dick's plan. A customer suggested bringing Honey Dew Donuts® to his own local community, and in 1975, this customer became the first franchisee. Three years later Dick introduced the drive-thru concept to New England when he installed one in the Plainville, Massachusetts shop.

Over time, as the chain expanded with more franchisees and more shops, so did the menu to include mouth-watering muffins, pastries, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, gourmet flavored coffees, and frozen beverages. Today, Dick heads a thriving franchise organization that, more than 30 years after the first shop in Mansfield opened, includes over 150 shops sprinkled throughout New England. Dick is now President of Honey Dew Associates and our Franchisees follow Dick's example and are local favorites in their own communities. In fact, many of them get to know their customers so well; they can fill orders as soon as they see their cars enter the parking lot!

Honey Dew Donuts is a New England based coffee and bakery Franchise Company with over 150 locations throughout the Northeast. We are currently seeking individuals, and couples to join our 35-year young brand.

Realizing Your Goals Through Franchising

If your goal is to build a successful business for yourself, you may be closer than you realize. You do not have to be a baker or a coffee aficionado to become a Honey Dew Donuts franchisee. All you need is a passion for business and the desire to operate retail, customer-focused business.

A brand with high consumer recognition, a product with strong consumer demand offered in a uniquely inviting atmosphere, and enticing, effective marketing programs are all part of our franchise package. Our stores are managed according to a tested system and we teach that system to our franchisees.

Choose The Option That Meets Your Goals

Whether you are interested in a single Honey Dew Donuts store or a multi-unit territory, we have got a program for you. There are even a limited number of existing franchise stores that you can acquire, either alone or as part of a package. The scalability of the Honey Dew Donuts concept is significant; from one full producing location, our franchisees have the ability to develop 5, 6 or even 7 satellite / kiosk locations.
