Great Harvest Bread Co. in Downtown Bend Gets a Face-Lift – and New Owners | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Great Harvest Bread Co. in Downtown Bend Gets a Face-Lift – and New Owners

If you've popped into the Great Harvest Bread Co. recently, you may have noticed the newly renovated space and a few new faces behind the counter.

The bakery, which has resided in downtown Bend for the past 27 years, was purchased in February by Bend residents Jeremy and Kristi Testerman. You'll still find some familiar items on the menu, but they're also mixing things up by testing a few new items and encouraging a family atmosphere with "Kids Eat Free Saturdays."

For the month of June, the bakery will donate 100 percent of dog treat sales to the Humane Society of Central Oregon, a fundraiser inspired by the Testerman's daughter, who loves animals.

"Bottom line: we want this to be a place for Bend to enjoy for the next 27 years," said the Testermans in a press release. "Come check out all of the changes we've made and help us give back to the community: we're always looking to improve, so let us know what you think!"
