Our Growth

Butterfields 2019

Honey Jam and Butterfields...the joining of two great brands! In July of 2019, Honey Jam and Butterfields merged and have been under the ownership of Honey Jam ever since. We completed the merging of two great menus in the fall and now you will start seeing the Honey Jam signage going up at the Butterfields locations. We are very excited about this news and can't wait for you to see the new look!

Broken Yolk 2021

In August of 2021 Honey Jam launched its southernmost location in Plainfield after taking over the Broken Yolk whose owner was retiring.  

Downers Delight 2022

In April of 2022 Jim and Olga Letsos, the long-time owners of Downers Delight retired after 27 beautiful years owning and running their business here in Downers Grove.  We are honored they trusted Honey Jam to take over their business and delight their customers as they had done for so long.  As such beloved owners, Jim and Olga will still be hanging around Honey Jam and visiting with friends and guests when they are able.  

Note on staffing: whenever we take over a new location, we do our best to keep all staff in place as we value the veteran staff and their knowledge, expertise and passion.  Typically you will still see all of your old favorites and the food will still be made with the same love as part of our Honey Jam team.
