ATLANTA - March 26, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Spring has sprung and according to a recent National Retail Federation survey, over 57 percent of consumers are already planning visits with friends and family this Easter. With over 85 percent of consumers surveyed planning to purchase food for a family meal or other festivity this Easter, HoneyBaked is prepared to make these traditions both easy and delicious with ready-to-serve, premium meals for busy families.
"With extended hours* at more than 400 locations nationwide, we expect to help more than half a million families have memorable and delicious Easter meals," said Maggie DeCan, HoneyBaked** president. "Our Hams and Turkey Breasts are available in several sizes and price points - and because they are fully cooked, sliced and hand-finished with HoneyBaked's sweet, crunchy glaze - our customers can spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying Easter traditions with their loved ones."
In the United States, Easter is often considered the "unofficial ham holiday," rivaling only Christmas for occasions when ham is the star of the family dinner table. HoneyBaked offers only the leanest, most flavorful moist and tender bone-in half hams found anywhere - without any added water or juices. HoneyBaked stores also carry tender, low fat and gluten free Smoked or Roasted Turkey Breasts and an array of premium sides, pies and cakes.
"While we are known for holiday meals and year-round catering, Easter is among our busiest times of the year," said DeCan. "With the Easter holiday arriving early this spring, our stores are ready to assist shoppers looking for the best of convenience and quality to make their meals memorable."
