Great Harvest named one of the best places to work.
Great Harvest Franchising, Inc. was named to Outside magazine’s third annual “Best Places to Work” list. The finalist list was selected based on confidential employee-satisfaction surveys addressing benefits, compensation, policies, job satisfaction, environmental initiatives, and community outreach programs.
“It’s truly an honor to receive the ‘Best Places To Work’ designation from Outside Magazine,” says our neighborhood bakery, Great Harvest CEO Mike Ferretti. “This company was founded on democratic workplace principles and an inspiring mission statement, which – among other things – underscores the importance of creating amazing whole grain bread, having fun doing it, running fast to help customers and giving generously to others. We’re also headquartered in southwestern Montana where enjoying the outdoors and living a healthy, balanced lifestyle is the rule, not the exception.”
Founded in 1976 in Great Falls, Mont., Great Harvest Franchising, Inc. has more than 200 bakeries located throughout the nation including Alaska and Hawaii. Great Harvest is known for handcrafted breads made with freshly ground whole wheat from the high plains of Montana.
Today the neighborhood bakeries create an array of legendary fresh-baked breads and sweets, as well as specialty items during holidays, all with pure-and-simple ingredients.
