Franchise Development Resale Specialist

There are more than 200 Great Harvest bakeries located across the United States. Whole grain, nutritious, made-from-scratch bread products that taste amazing are at the heart of our business, and have been for over 30 years. Great Harvest has been recognized for the past eight years as one of the most democratic workplaces in the world by Worldblu, and nationally as an outstanding franchise opportunity (Entrepreneur Magazine Top 500 Franchises) for the past 11+ years. We have been on Outside Magazine’s list of Best Places to Work. The company attracts employees who work and play hard, and enjoy living in small town Montana.

Each of our bakeries is individually owned and operated. At some point, every owner needs an exit strategy, and most commonly that means selling their bakery to new owners. Whether they are ready to retire or move onto other professional endeavors, it is the goal of Great Harvest Franchising to assist existing owners with the transfer of ownership to new owners who will share our corporate values and who have a passion for running a great business.

As a Franchise Development Resale Specialist, you will assist existing owners with the sale of their business, help to locate new owners, and facilitate the sales process between buyer and seller.

Great Harvest offers competitive salaries, a bonus plan, a 401(k) plan, a health plan, a generous vacation plan and ten paid holidays per year. And, of course, free bread!
