Great Harvest Bread
Meet Your Bakers!

David Maxwell is purchasing the bakery in Salt Lake City, Utah.  He is passionate about people and loves connecting with the people in the Great Harvest system--bakery owners, employees, Dillon staff, and of course the customers!  He brings his experience from office management, project management, and working in a Great Harvest.  David likes to dabble in farming (chickens, pigs, rabbits, and a horse at one point) and enjoys down time with Olivia, his wife of 14 years, and his 3 boys.
Heather Merrill is purchasing the bakeries in Longmont and Erie, Colorado, with her husband Jay.  Her daughter Mikayla has been working in the Longmont store for over 1 year and inspired Heather and Jay to make the leap into bakery ownership.  She brings over 22 years of experience in nutrition and health as a nurse.  Heather has 5 kids in total and enjoys spending time with them whether camping or watching baseball games (over 200 last summer!!).  She’s excited to create a cozy “place to call home” where people can enjoy quality product and maybe a steaming coffee on cold Colorado mornings.
Bob Quigley is purchasing the bakery in Boulder, Colorado.  After years away from his college home, he’s excited to return and purchase the location that inspired his Great Harvest aspirations 17 years ago.  He brings 25 years of experience in leadership positions, as well as experience in catering, project management, and customer service.  Bob collects vinyl records (over 2800 in his collection!), loves to cook, and enjoys spending time with his newly graduated 18 year old son and his fiance. 

Jodie Hawthorne is purchasing the bakery in Wilmington, NC with her husband Eric.  Jodie has been baking for more than 20 years, both at home, for friends and in a professional bakery.  After spending some time working in the corpporate world, she's ready to get back in the bakery where her true passion lives.  When she's not baking, she's swimming, biking and enjoying all that Wilmington has to offer with her husband, daughter and son.

David Snyder is opening a brand new bakery in Trussville, Alabama, with his wife Jennifer.  He’s a proud father of 2 young men who he’s excited to spend more time with as they pursue this family business together.  He was called to the Great Harvest model by his desire to be close to his family, engage with the community, and work where he can give generously to the community.  David brings over 25 years of management and training experience to his bakery.  He’s a huge Lions fan--even has friends on the team--and enjoys sports and his time with his family.
