About Great Harvest Bread Co.
Pete and Laura Wakeman founded Great Harvest Bread Company in 1976 after they put themselves through Cornell University by selling bread to local farmers in the nearby towns. The company has since spent the past 40 years perfecting the combination of ingredients to make the freshest and authentic breads and pastries, as well as the newer sandwiches, grain bowls and soups, growing to over 200 locations, all of which continue to mill their own Golden Triangle wheat every morning from scratch. Providing local communities with authentic breads and pastries made fresh daily, the brand is now growing through franchising with a new bakery-café model ideal for multi-unit ownership. Open during three parts of the day - breakfast, lunch and dinner - the menu has grown beyond a wide variety of soft, delicious breads to include soups, sandwiches and grain bowls.
