We are meeting with Mike Feretti, CEO of the Great Harvest Bread Company Company. Great Harvest Bread Company, a 40-year-old bakery brand that makes bread “the way it was made in the Bible” – milled from whole grains every day on the premises of its local franchised bakeries

Great Harvest Bread recently announced it will begin offering a “hub and spoke” bakery-café franchise opportunity. With the new model, franchisees can purchase a large territory that includes a single Great Harvest Bread Co. bakery operation, and as many café-only units as they desire in surrounding towns. The bakery locations would be equipped with ovens and ample space to produce and deliver the hand-milled breads to the nearby café-only locations throughout the day.


Great Harvest Company believes their success comes from a strong commitment to uphold the legacy and integrity of the Great Harvest brand. Great Harvest is about customer experience and the promise of phenomenal tasting food made with freshly-milled whole grains and pure and simple ingredients.
