Honey Dew Donuts Franchise

The Honey Dew Donuts franchise is for a donut bakery. It was founded in 1973 and started franchising in 1974.

It was founded by Richard J. Bowen and he is the current President of Honey dew Associates. Ever since he was little, he had the passion for donuts and dreamt of having a donut shop of his own. His father worked at a donut shop in West Roxbury, Massachusetts and he followed his father to work. When he was in high school, he worked at several donut shops and coffee shops while he prepared to have his own one day. In 1973, he was able to open his own donut shop in Mansfield, Massachusetts and named it Honey Dew Donuts. They say that it quickly became a favourite for the locals and he promised that his donuts are “Always Fresh, Always Good”. He did not planning on growing a chain of coffee and donut shop but one of his customers convinced him that he wanted to bring the shop to his local community. That customer became his first franchisee in 1975. He now has 149 locations in the United States and one location that is company owned.
