Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc.® is a family owned and operated consumer goods company headquartered in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. We are a bread and roll manufacturer rigorously dedicated to extraordinary taste, quality, and customer service and proudly represents our legacy of cherished eating experiences.
From our bakery to store shelves
Many people have tried to duplicate the taste, flavor, and texture of Martin’s Famous Potato Rolls and Bread. We’ve even had people say that if they had time to bake bread, they would want it to taste like Martin’s! We bake our award-winning rolls and bread, transport them quickly to the store, and only leave them on store shelves for 3-4 days, which is a significantly shorter amount of time than our competitors. We work hard to make sure that you get the freshest, tastiest product possible!
From ingredients to taste
We use high protein wheat flour (and for our whole wheat products we use 100% stone-ground whole wheat), nonfat milk, potatoes, real cane sugar, yeast, sunflower oil, and butter in our bakery products. Other bakeries may “cut corners” and use cheaper ingredients, but we believe using high quality ingredients is absolutely necessary and we wouldn’t do it any other way.

Responding to demand, a larger bakery was built at the site that is now Martin’s Corporate Headquarters at 1000 Potato Roll Lane, Chambersburg PA.
The family started focusing on bread and rolls, using route salesmen to help with distribution and customer service.
Martin’s Family Restaurant/Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe
The bakery was run in the back while a restaurant was run in the front of the building.
Farmer’s Markets to Grocery Stores
The Martin family began baking in a one car garage to sell to farmer’s markets and eventually started selling to grocery stores.
Beyond our bakery
Martin’s exceptional customer service goes beyond our corporate and bakery walls. To us, giving back to our surrounding community through service projects, product donations, and contributions to nonprofit organizations is part of who we are. Even in the early days of Lloyd and Lois Martin, resources were used to help make our world a better place. That legacy continues today as Martin’s donates a portion of earnings to select charities each year.
Our Chambersburg bakery is located in the same Pennsylvania Dutch community that inspired our first bakery products. Also located here are our corporate headquarters and Golden Roll Visitor Center.
Located just north of the Georgia/Florida border and in the heart of the historical South, Valdosta, Georgia has been home to our second bakery since 2007.
