Mitchell Dolfuss, Manager
At Honey Baked Ham we are offering carryout, home delivery, curbside pickup and call-ahead orders, and taking extra precautions to ensure no contact or as little as possible. We clean more now than ever before. When we’re not making food or putting in an order, we’re cleaning.
I can’t tell you how many thank-yous we’ve gotten for staying open. They really recognize the effort we’ve made and everyone is really appreciative. We’re still getting some business, but not like before or during the holiday rush.
The local restaurants have really been able to come together, and we wish everyone the best.
As manager, the biggest challenge has been looking out for workers and providing hours for them. With bills continuing to come in, that can be a challenge, especially if business isn’t as much as usual.
The community can support us by continuing to order food from us. But even then, supplies are very limited right now after the Easter holiday rush, and it’s been hard even being able to order things because supplies are so limited. It’s definitely a new hurdle to experience. It was something I took for granted, being able to call and order essentially anything we needed.
This is a family store at the end of the day. My grandfather started it, my dad owns it and I run it. We’re trying to keep our legacy going. We’ll get you food any way we can get it, even if that means going outside our normal realm of doing it. Customer service is our number one goal.
