  • Great Harvest Bread Company Photo by Mack's ApplesThe franchisor based this presentation on financial information reported by franchisees. The franchisor has not verified this information or verified its accuracy. The franchisees reported their numbers for 2010.
  • The amounts presented in the pro forma worksheets do not include the results of 29 Great Harvest franchisees in operation during the entire 2010 year, as these franchisees failed to report any or some of their 2010 financial results.

  • Bread companies in 39 states are represented in the averages.
