Today, Great Harvest Bread Company announced plans for a new Rochester location in the First Alliance Credit Union branch which is being built on Commerce Drive NW.

“Our partnership with First Alliance Credit Union was the perfect opportunity to help more people be able to enjoy our fresh made breads, goodies, sandwiches and more.” shared Dan Sweeney, owner of the Rochester Great Harvest franchise. “There were many aspects of this project that helped me decide this would be a good partnership. Most importantly, like Great Harvest, First Alliance is focused on providing a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere for their clientele. This was evident to me from the moment I was presented with the unique environment that First Alliance Commons will offer our customers and the community. We are excited to be able to share more details as our project progresses.”
