Great Harvest Bread
A Fresh Start
This Great Harvest Bread Co. in Goldsboro 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. 

Goldsboro 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 goodies that will knock your socks off!    

Goldsboro has been our home for over a eight years. We taught middle school for four years together and enjoyed the relationships we built throughout the years. But, as much as we love teaching, we felt as if we were being called to serve our community in another way.  Both of us knew that Great Harvest was for us.  We both remember buying bread at a Great Harvest in each of our home towns, and we remembered the awesome feelings we had through the kindness and generosity of the owners.  We knew that the Great Harvest mission statement to be loose and have fun, to bake phenomenal bread, to run fast to serve others and give generously was exactly our way of thinking.   After discussing the opportunity with our families, we turned in our lesson plan books, handed over our lunchroom and recess duties, and began our Great Harvest journey. Michele's husband, Bryan, and their three teenage children, and Melissa's husband, Tim, and their three teenage children, are all excited about making the bakery a family affair. We’re looking forward to bringing this tradition to you, our neighbors and friends.

Thanks for stopping by, we’re glad you came!
