This Great Harvest Bread Co. in Rockford is a dream come true — our dream! Our passion for great tasting, nutritious bread, and our desire to run a community-based business, led us to Great Harvest. They have been making great bread for communities across the U.S. for over 30 years.
Rockford's Great Harvest looks like no other Great Harvest out there. We operate under a “Freedom Franchise.” The “Freedom” part means that we get to run our business in a way that meets our community’s unique needs. The “Franchise” part gives us access to the recipes and processes that Great Harvest has continuously improved for over three decades. The result is breads and sweets that will knock your socks off!
Rockford has been our home for over 26 years. In 1996 we made the decision to pursue our dream. So, Steve said good-bye to banking, Barb said good-bye to her med-tech job, kicked the suit and tie (and lab coat) and we are now up to our elbows in dough. We’re excited to bring this tradition to you, our neighbors and friends.
