With a passion for great food we fell in love with Great Harvest as newlyweds and were obsessed with the Honey Whole Wheat bread offered at our local Great Harvest. Several years ago we made the decision to pursue our dream. We wanted a business that fit our lifestyle. We love to cook and entertain friends and family, and Great Harvest has provided us with a great way to do so.
Meet the Owners
Kevin and Tina Yancey
First Kevin sold his business, and then Tina said good-bye to Corporate America. Now we are up to our elbows in dough! We opened our first Great Harvest bakery in 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada. With the addition of our daughter Sophia in 2009, it was our desire to move home. Tina’s an Oakland County native, and we felt that it’s important for our children to grow up near their cousin’s, grandparents, aunts, and uncles! After running both bakeries for nearly a year, we sold the Las Vegas bakery and are now permanent “Michiganders”.
The Birmingham bakery has been a staple of the community since 1995 and we are excited about continuing the ancient tradition of grinding wheat and baking bread made-from-scratch for you, our neighbors, friends, and family. As business owners, we recognize that we are only in existence because of each and every one of you. We appreciate, and truly celebrate you every time you come through our doors. Even if you drop by just for a free slice and a chat! You make us who we are, so thank you…
