Beginning the week before St. Patrick’s Day, Great Harvest Bread will celebrate the Irish holiday with new menu items at its participating bakery café stores. The special lineup will feature made from scratch breads and sweet goods.


Some of the menu items that will be featured include Irish Soda Bread, Gouda and Stout Bread and Shamrock Sugar Cookies, along with other St. Patrick’s Day-inspired themes and items reflective of a specific town.


“Of all the celebrations on the calendar, St Paddy’s is clearly one that we can participate in,” says Mike Ferretti, CEO of Great Harvest Bread Co. “In addition to Guinness, everyone thinks about having great Irish Soda Bread this time of year, plus we are going to offer other amazing products that are going to surprise people.”


Certain Great Harvest locations will also offer Blarney Scones and Irish Cream Scones.


Great Harvest has a network of over 200 independently owned stores throughout the United States, with a nearly 40-year history of creating strong and exciting bakeries.
