As consumers empty grocery store shelves of many items, bread is on a limited supply in some communities. Great Harvest Bread Co. has announced that its business owners are able to regulate each location’s made-to-order baking schedule to fulfill each community’s need for bread and other meal-to-go options.
According to the bakery-café chain, each location is able to take orders, plan, and bake accordingly to ensure customers get what they for looking for and in the amounts they are requesting. To ensure availability, owners encourage customers to place orders ahead of time and coordinate the best possible next day pick-up time.
All Great Harvest Bread locations will be temporarily shifting to offer only in-store pick up until further notice. Some owners are also offering curb-side pickup and delivery through third-party delivery.
“Providing a safe environment for our customers and employees while offering necessities such as fresh bread is our top priority,” says Mike Ferretti, CEO of Great Harvest. “Our franchisees want to give people a convenient and local option for freshly-baked bread and made-to-order meals, so customers can take care of their families at home without stressing about the availability of bread and nutritious options.”
