Longtime bread baker Bob Garrett recently sold the Great Harvest Bread Co. store in Lawrence, Kansas, to the mother-daughter partnership of Marty Peterson and Sarah Burtch, according to a report in the Lawrence Journal-World.
Burtch told the Journal-World the store is keeping the favorite recipes and bread varieties that have made the shop popular since its opening in the mid-1990s. The shop still makes about a dozen varieties of bread per day but plans to have more of a rotational menu to entice shoppers to try more seasonal offerings.
Among the new offerings are a dessert called a Savannah bar, which is a fruit streusel bar that features different fruits each day. Also new is Popeye bread, which features spinach, red peppers and parmesan cheese.
The store is part of a chain of more than 200 Great Harvest bakeries, but each store is individually owned. The store will continue to use freshly ground whole wheat that is milled at the store daily to produce its breads.
