Are you looking for a healthier food option in the area of 12th and North in Grand Junction? Look who's moving into the old Gelu Italian Ice building across from Colorado Mesa University.

It's coming soon. Great Harvest Bread Company is opening a new location at 1122 N. 12th Street, right next to McDonald's. According to their Facebook page, the new shop's grand opening is April 5.

This store represents a second location for the Great Harvest Bread Company. Their other location will continue to operate at 2464 US Hwy 6 And 50, Suite 130.

To celebrate the opening of the new location, they're offering a very special deal. You can bring a friend to lunch at the new location opening on April 5. Order one lunch item and your friend eats free of same or lesser value. Your friend must be present to redeem the coupon. That offer is available through April 26.

In my mind, this is the perfect addition to the area around 12th and North and CMU. The intersection already features every fast food option under the rainbow, and a number of pizza joints and doughnut shops. This is an excellent option for those working in the vicinity or attending CMU. The sign on the door shows the shop's hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
