The Shake Shack Bun
Our Sandwich Potato Rolls are the #1 Branded Hamburger Roll in America*. In addition to being used by Shake Shack and other food service venues, these rolls have helped chefs and restaurateurs win numerous cooking competitions. Consumers love the soft texture of this roll and its ability to hold up to a hefty burger piled high with condiments (with some help from the “hinge”).
*according to IRi sales data
We have a mission to “bake the best products and provide the best sales distribution support.” This commitment to quality can be seen in every aspect of our business, including our products, our ingredients, and our work ethic. We know that hard work and dedication pays off. The sweet, buttery flavor and soft, pillowy texture of Martin’s Potato Rolls and Bread are a favorite among families, chefs, and foodies. Our products are sold fresh in the eastern United States and distributed to thousands of food service venues throughout the US and to 20 other countries (and we are still growing)!
Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc.® is an all-American family owned and operated consumer goods company headquartered in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. Our business has been operated by the Martin family since 1955 when Lloyd and Lois started baking products in their garage. Now Martin’s® is an international corporation and is managed by the second and third generations of Martins. Lloyd and Lois would be humbled to know how this American dream story has inspired many to embark on dreams of their own. The Martins have never lost sight of their faith in God, their dedication to family, and their rigorous dedication to baking the best products.

|“Few burger chains have enjoyed as meteoric a rise as Shake Shack. From a single NYC location to a $100 million IPO just over a decade later, its cult-like following can be attributed to a number of factors — its custom Pat LaFrieda beef blend, those nostalgia-inducing crinkle fries, the “hospitality first” mantra imparted by founder Danny Meyer — but there’s another culinary force at play that shouldn’t be overlooked: those illustrious, pillowy-soft potato buns that cradle its burger patties.” Read More|

Jan 15, 2015
|“Start With A Martin’s Potato Roll…Sure enough, dozens of bags of Martin’s sandwich buns lie behind the counter at Shake Shack. They’re not “Made for Shake Shack Edition,” either—the bags are identical to ones I find up the block at my local grocery store.
