UPDATE: Great Harvest Bread Company

Posted on Mon, Feb 27, 2012 at 1:00 PM

The windmill at Great Harvest has been spinning for almost 33 years now. Despite bakeries being among the most difficult businesses to keep afloat, a dedicated following of grocery shoppers and diners alike continue to show their support.

Kiefer Jones, a cashier at the bakery, says changeover in the ownership has shifted things a little, but in a good way.

"Well, we've vamped up the deli menu, and there's more variety in the bread. We've just been trying to make everything available more often," says Jones.

Which means you might not have to throw elbows (this time) to get ahold of their best sellers, the basic whole-wheat loaf ($5.25) or their gooey cinnamon roll ($2.50).

So what's the secret to their three decades of success?

"We offer a different product than what you find in the grocery store," Kiefer replies. "The homemade feel is what we go for." (Alicia Purvis-Lariviere)
