About Great Harvest Bread Co.

Great Harvest Bread Co. began in Montana in 1975 when Pete and Laura Wakeman began selling their homemade bread to help pay their college tuition. Within three years, the first franchise store opened and before long, a number of locations were baking and selling the company's whole-grain, all-natural bread. Today, Great Harvest Bread has become a top franchise for sale. In addition to baking bread, many locations now serve sandwiches, paninis and a variety of coffee beverages. The company recently began offering the popular hard-crusted European-style breads in many of its franchised bakeries. Those looking to get a franchise with Great Harvest will find themselves with a very marketable product that appeals to the growing number of health-conscious consumers.
