About Us

 

A Little History…

Your Great Harvest Bread Co. in Cajun Country is a dream come true — our dream!  We’ve been milling wheat and making bread for family and friends for over 12 years. Our passion for great tasting, nutritious bread, and our desire to run a community-based business, led us to Great Harvest. They have been making great bread for communities across the U.S. for over 30 years.

Your Lafayette 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 like baking King Cakes during Mardi Gras season! The “Franchise” part gives us access to the recipes and processes that have been continuously improving over three decades. The result is breads, sweetsand sandwiches that’ll make you say “talk about good”!

So after doing this milling and baking thing for nearly 13 years, we were blessed to sell the bakery to Brian Melancon, a Youngsville native!  Brian is young, energetic and STRONG!  And he’ll take the bakery to the next level.  We have lots of confidence in him.

Brian will continue bringing the ancient tradition of grinding wheat and baking bread made-from-scratch to you, our neighbors, friends, and family. Thanks for stopping by, we’re glad you came!
