Cassie Wiste, Owner/Operator, & Deb Shepherd, Bread Baker
For over 34 years, Great Harvest Bread Company has brought wholesome, freshly baked breads, cookies, muffins, and scones to the FMWF community. While the bakery began as a way for two students to pay for their college tuition, it has evolved into a community staple. Today, the bakery is run by Cassie Wiste, a former customer-turned-owner, and Deb Shepherd, the chief creator of the delicious breads that have come out of the store for 13 years.
Great Harvest Bread Company prioritizes making excellent bread and giving generously to others. On top of providing excellent service to customers, they donate their endof-day bread to area nonprofits and shelters such as The New Life Center, Salvation Army, and the YWCA. Great Harvest Bread is grateful to be able to give back to the community, which has provided them with so much in return.
“The Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo area is full of so much opportunity,” Cassie said. “Families can flourish and businesses can thrive with the community’s drive to support local and create spaces where everyone has a chance to prosper.”
