Great Harvest started as a bread bakery in Montana, sourcing the healthiest, best tasting wheat in the world from local Montana farms. Today, Great Harvest Bakery Cafes continues to bake all of their breads from scratch, with fresh milled Montana wheat and has transitioned to a place where customers can sit down and enjoy a fresh made sandwich.
The secret to the brand’s success are five simple ingredients, including freshly milled, perfect kernels of wheat. This simple recipe created bread so good, that it was shared by Great Harvest’s founders with friends and family. The brand’s customers can try any bread baked that day, and order sandwiches with the bread of their choice. Three decades later, the brand’s 200+ bakery cafes are proud to serve as local “Bread Heavens,” making exceptional baked goods available in their communities.
Paul Cairnie, Chief Executive Officer World Franchise Associates says, “Great Harvest is an exceptional brand for investors. Everything is made fresh, on site and locally—nothing frozen or packaged. The brand’s freedom franchise model allows for flexibility for success including menu, pricing, local decor/design. And the brand’s partnership with Artisan Italian Coffee Roaster Caffe D’arte, offers a superior full line coffee and espresso program.”
