Learn more about Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe:
Martin’s is a family owned and operated consumer goods company headquartered in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. We are a bread and roll manufacturer that is rigorously dedicated to extraordinary taste, quality and customer service and proudly represents our legacy of cherished eating experiences.
Martin’s is famous for their potato rolls, the "#1 Branded Hamburger Roll in the United States," which is also sold in eleven other countries. The company has a nationwide following = Food Network stars Michael Symon and Bobby Flay swear by Martin's potato rolls, and Shake Shack has been using the rolls exclusively since 2004. Martin's makes other products as well—hot dog buns and sandwich bread, namely—but the classic four-inch potato roll from the 1950s is the company's star.
Since 2015, Martin's potato rolls have been GMO-free and free of artificial flavorings and dyes. Social Media Manager Julie Martin says that Martin's is one of the few companies to use real milk and potatoes, which makes the brand stand out in a realm of highly processed products.
