Honey Dew Donuts Franchise

Donut shop

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
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
 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!
