Back in the 1950s, in the kitchen of their home in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country, Lois and Lloyd Martin perfected their potato roll. Using a recipe that had been handed down in their family for longer than anyone could remember and guided by Lloyd’s 12 years of experience working in his father in law’s bakery, the Martins soon felt they had a product they would be proud to sell. The sweet, buttery taste, soft texture, and distinctive golden color made the Martin’s Potato Roll an instant favorite.
When the operation grew too large for the Martin’s home to handle, the bakery moved in the Martin’s Family Restaurant. By 1978 a new plant was built at 1000 Potato Roll Lane in Chambersburg, PA where they continue to bake today.
