GREAT FALLS - A map making the rounds on social media sites recently is titled "The Corporate States of America," and it associates each state with its most famous brand.
The company selected for Montana is Great Harvest, which is based in Great Falls. Other brands include Starbucks, representing Washington, Hershey's for Pennsylvania and Nike for Oregon.
The first Great Harvest bread opened in 1975 and became very popular for its unique style of breads.
Decades later, there are 240 locations across the nation, ringing up more than $100 million in annual sales, and each of those stores only use Montana wheat.
