A Fresh Start!

This Great Harvest Bread Co. in  Naperville, IL 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. 

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

Jo Anne and Mike Nikodem - Owners and Bakers 

  • Every morning we stone mill high protein whole wheat into the freshest and most nutritious flour possible. Nothing's added or removed. This is the magic of whole grains.
  • We're a 'low tech', old fashioned, made-by-hand from scratch bakery.
  • We use the best, most pure and wholesome ingredients.
  • We add no artificial ingredients, conditioners or preservatives.
