The owners of the whole wheat bakery have been in business since 2003 in Olivette.
After one false-start, the owners of the Great Harvest Bread in Olivette said they are ready to relocate to Maplewood sometime around Mother’s Day. Owners Steve and Alecia Jawor said business had been building over eight years, but went flat the last two. Also, their landlord wouldn’t reduce their rent. Steve Jawor said Maplewood officials enticed them to move into a food district with incentives like forgivable loans and signage reimbursement. Jawor said he’s sad to leave Olivette, but optimistic about moving to Maplewood. “All of the mayors, City Manager Mike McDowell, Public Works Director Mike Gartenberg, Police Chief Knox were always so supportive of everything we did,” he said. “We just want to thank them and all the residents. …

The first installment of this occasional column surveys the working conditions at Bread Co. branches, including in Clayton and Richmond Heights.
If you frequent St. Louis Bread Company (known to those outside St. Louis as Panera), you can hardly fail to notice people working. Yes, the employees are busy serving up soups, sandwiches and scones. But I'm talking about the people hunched over their laptops and talking business over coffee and bagels. “We see interviews taking place," area director Don Hutcheson said. "There’s cubicle zombies that are looking to get out of their office and sit down with a (cup) of coffee. It's a real big escape for lots of people." I am one of those people. Patch does not have offices, so I divide my time between a desk in my spare bedroom and tables at cafés. Bread Co. is ideal for lots of reasons. Plenty of locations around metro St. Louis? Check. …
