We’re proud to announce that our bakery has recently been named the recipient of the 2013 Phenomenal Bread Award. This award recognizes our bakery as one of the top 5 Great Harvest Bread Companies in the nation for bread quality.
Great Harvest is a franchise, but it’s not run like a typical franchise. Each bakery is independent and is responsible for milling their own flour and making all of their products in-house from scratch.
As part of quality control, each of the 230 or so bakeries must submit loaves of our signature Honey Whole Wheat bread throughout the year. These loaves are evaluated based on taste, texture, appearance, color, size, flavor balance and general awesomeness. Each year, the top 25 bakeries with the highest scoring bread are invited to submit a final loaf for the award consideration. Only 5 bakeries are chosen each year for this award.
This is the second time Great Harvest Thousand Oaks has won the award. We also won it for 2010, and we have been finalists in 6 of the last 7 years. We couldn’t accomplish this without top-quality ingredients and a fantastic crew who give great attention to details and all the nuances of craft bread-making. Of course, we wouldn’t be anywhere without our wonderful customers!
Stop by and enjoy a free slice of our award winning bread!
