We are locally owned!! Our goal is to provide quality ingredients, a great customer experience and the promise of phenomenal tasting food. We strive for a balanced menu, pure and simple ingredients, and freshly milled wheat and spelt berries to create a superior product.
Great Harvest Bread Co. is a franchise, but different from others…it’s a Freedom Franchise, which means that each bakery is locally-owned and highly encouraged to create a menu, recipes, and atmosphere for the local community it represents.
We do our best to embody the Great Harvest mission statement:
Be loose and have fun. Bake phenomenal bread. Run fast to help customers. Create strong and exciting bakeries. And give generously to others.
Our team and owners embody the Bend spirit: family-oriented, seek adventure, love to give, and have a positive outlook. Our team cares about your experience and our products, and that is a huge reason as to why everything tastes so good!
The owners: the Testerman family purchased this bakery from Cloyd on February 27th, 2019. We have always wanted to own a local business together, but it was never the right time or place. When our kids were born, our focus was on them…now Sofie is 11, Billie is 8, and we think it’s such a great time for them to learn what it means to work hard and be part of the community. You’ll see them in the bakery from time to time – Sofie is fantastic with customer service, and Billie loves working the cash register! Either way, our goal is to provide something unique, tasty, and geared for Bend. We have been working extremely hard to learn everything to make this special…it hasn’t been perfect, but hopefully you’ll see the love we put into it!
We offer a variety of products! Fresh baked bread and goodies made with freshly milled flour, delicious soup, sandwiches and salads, and a happy place to come and visit.
This is the future...who knows? We may still be here. If so, hopefully it's awesome.
Cloyd is looking forward to time in Alaska and sells the bakery to the Testerman family.
