Great Harvest Bread Co. owners Jody and Eric Hawthorne have launched a new line of sandwiches served on Great Harvest’s fresh baked breads.
The Hawthornes purchased Great Harvest from the previous owners, Suzanne and John Palmer, in September of last year with the intention of expanding the bakery to include sandwiches.
Jody Hawthorne explained that franchise owners have the option when opening a store to sell only baked goods and breads, or to include sandwiches.
“As soon as we got through the holidays we began installing the upgrades necessary for getting the sandwich service up and going,” Jody Hawthorne said.
All of the deli meats and cheeses are sliced in-house, and all of the condiments, such as chipotle mayonnaise and hummus, are homemade as well. Great Harvest also makes a Louisville chicken salad with white meat chicken, seasoned mayonnaise and sweet and spicy pecans.
Sandwiches such as the classic turkey, ham or roast beef can be prepared on any of the three breads that are baked daily: the honey wheat, the country white, or the Dakota, which is topped with poppy, sesame, pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Or customers can choose from any of the rotating fresh-baked breads of the day.
Other sandwich options include the Baja chipotle turkey, the veggie three-seed hummus, which is a vegan option, and peanut butter and jelly.
Sandwich prices range from $4.25 to $7.75 and customers can make it a meal with chips and a drink for an extra $2.00 or any sweet and a drink for $3.25.
The Hawthornes hope to eventually also offer hot panini sandwiches and perhaps breakfast sandwiches as well.
Sandwich trays and box lunches are available in all sizes, as are an assortment of cookie and sweet trays. Catering orders over $100 qualify for free delivery.
Great Harvest Bread Co. is located at 5327 Oleander Drive, Suite 100 and is open from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
