HELLO MIDDLE TENNESSEE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

Thank you so much for coming to visit us at our Great Harvest Bread Co location in Cookeville or by simply visiting us here on our web page. We are super excited about being a part of your family, the Cookeville community and surrounding areas!!!  Let me introduce you to your Cookeville TN Great Harvest Bread Co family.      

Wayne and Chrissy Howell come to Cookeville Tn as a family of 5 Florida born natives all having been raised in the town of Auburndale, and excpet for actually relocating and living in Cookeville for 3 short years from 2007 to 2010, Auburndale was their home. But here they are again, this time as exciting new owners of Cookevilles Great Harvest Bread Co. The Howells simply love and enjoy their simple family times togegher. This is one idea that sparked the excitement of being able to do something else together as a family. Although any business venture can be a daunting task, after a lot of prayer, considerations, counsel and more prayer the decision to relocate and work a family business became a reality.    

Wayne and Chrissy have been married for 23 yrs this year October 2013 and have homeschooled their 3 kids since day one almost 18 yrs ago. Chrissy of course has always worn the biggest hat in that role of homeschooling. It was never out of a fear of the public system, it was just an opportunity and a blessing that Wayne and Chrissy embraced. Chrissy's initial pursuits in life was to be an educator, so she embraced the desire for teaching others and concentrated them to their own. Chrissy has had the opportunity to share her enjoyment of teaching with others as well participating and being invloved in many homeschool groups. Groups ranging from 4-H to Classical Converstations. Wayne comes with over 12 years of retail bakery experience hoping to build on the excietement that Great Harvest Bread Co as a franchise provides. Wayne and the family have always loved being part of a local church, while serving and growing together and are excited about serving the local Cookeville community.     

So this is just a small snap shot of your new local Great Harvest Bread Co owners, it would be great if you would stop in and see them in person. Sit down with them and learn a little more about them while you share something about your self. They would love to meet you !!!!                  

 If you have never been in to Great Harvest, here are a few more reasons why ought to stop in.. 

Great Harvest Bread Co have been making great bread for communities across the U.S. for over 30 years. Cookeville Great Harvest looks like no other Great Harvest out there. We operate under a “Freedom Franchise.” The “Freedom” part means that we get to run our business in a way that meets our community’s unique needs. The “Franchise” part gives us access to the recipes and processes that Great Harvest has continuously improved for over three decades. The result is breads and sweets that will knock your socks off!     

Five pure-and-simple ingredients are the hallmark of our legendary whole grain breads:Fresh-ground whole wheat flourWaterFresh yeastSaltSomething sweet (usually a local honey)We believe bread is best when you keep it simple. It's even better when you use the highest quality ingredients you can find. You can taste it and your body benefits from it. Just like fresh-ground coffee beans make a better cup of coffee, fresh-ground grains of wheat make a better tasting - and better for you - loaf of bread.Thanks to our special scratch-made process, our classic breads still stay fresh for up to ten days (if you can keep your hands off it that long!).     

The farmers who produce our whole wheat know Great Harvest is a tough client. Every year we test the crop for its protein content, moisture level, baking qualities and, of course, its distinctive taste. The high quality wheat we purchase allows us to bake without using artificial dough conditioners to boost loaf size.
