Get ready for more delicious baked goods! In a new Facebook post, Great Harvest Bread Company in Cedar Rapids has announced that they plan to open a second location in the city later on this year!

According to their June newsletter, the new Great Harvest location will be at 3998 Westdale Parkway SW. The original location at 5070 Lindale Dr NE will remain open, but the two bakeries will be a little bit different. The newsletter reads:

"Our plan is to bake all the bread here at 5070 Lindale Dr. NE, where our bakers have the experience, and bake sweets, including some new things, over at the new Cafe on Westdale Parkway. We'll be expanding the menu there to include breakfast sandwiches and some hot sandwiches as well as the cold ones we make at the main bakery."

The Great Harvest at Westdale is expected to open sometime in early September, but in the meantime, the owners are looking to hire a full-time Sweets Baker that they can start training. Whoever they hire for that position would ultimately manage the new store. You can get more information and fill out an application for the position HERE.

Years ago, Brain and I had the pleasure of doing an endorsement with Great Harvest Bread Company. We got to try everything from bread to sweets to sandwiches, and I think I can speak for both of us when I say that EVERY SINGLE THING we had was delicious! The Jalapeno Cheddar and Baked Potato Bread were always my favorite. You can check out the current bread and sweets schedule HERE.
