Shannon Hester, owner of The Hamlet, knows all about the importance of family around the holidays. As a small business owner, she depends on the help of her family to maintain the quality and spirit of the deli. “I couldn’t do it without them. I depend on my family’s support,” Shannon says, and they have made support a standard ­practice. After Shannon’s father, Gordon Pendergraft, sold The Hamlet in 2003, Shannon was eager to bring the eatery back to the family.  

    Under her ownership, The Hamlet has thrived and evolved. Boasting new gourmet dips, meal starters, and desserts, The Hamlet is no longer relegated to the award-winning honey-kissed hams and smoked meats. They are now offering made-to-order gift baskets that serve as perfect hostess and corporate gifts. Customers can choose from an assortment of Oklahoma-made products and delicacies, or they can ask the friendly staff for ­recommendations or themed ideas. Can’t pick the gift basket up? Not to worry. The Hamlet ships meats and gift baskets, and they also make deliveries in the Tulsa metro area.

    Situated in two convenient locations, 91st and Sheridan and 71st and Trenton, The Hamlet has been a Tulsa favorite for decades. Known for their ­­ spiral-sliced ham and Boar’s Head deli, The Hamlet serves a noteworthy spiral-cut ham sandwich that has inspired a loyal patronage. The deli is packed with all homemade sides, soups, salads and sandwiches. If you can’t make it into the deli, lunch boxes are also available for individuals or corporate meetings.  

    As Thanksgiving approaches, Shannon encourages customers to preorder turkeys and hams. Customers can either call to place an order, or they can order online. “You won’t get a better ham or turkey. We have gone through and inspected each one. They are delicious,” Shannon encourages. Whether you are serving a small family or a family of 36, The Hamlet has plenty of options to meet your needs. They offer hams ranging from 6 to 18 lbs, and turkeys that range from 10 to 14 lbs.

    With all of her clan’s ­support, Shannon hopes to pay it forward. “The holidays are all about spending time with family. Let us worry about the ­preparations. Our meats are so convenient and delicious.” They are precooked and require no preparation – just take it home and serve it.

    In the upcoming year, look for The Hamlet’s new facelift. Complete with outdoor seating and a fireplace, The Hamlet’s new look will bring the gourmet flavor into the décor as well as the food.
