Company Description


Great Harvest Bread Co. is a bread-focused franchise that sells variations on their classic, fresh-baked whole-wheat loaf, including honey whole wheat, farmhouse white, spinach feta, and cinnamon raisin walnut. The company’s corporate headquarters are in Dillon, Montana.

Husband and wife Pete and Laura Wakeman began baking and selling bread together in the early 1970s while they were both students at Cornell University to help pay tuition. In 1976, they opened their first bread shop in Great Falls, Montana, calling it the Great Harvest Bread Co. Two years later, the bakery became a franchise when its first franchised location opened in nearby Kalispell, Montana.
