Distribution partnerships have the power to turn dreams into reality. As Martin's® continues to gain ground in the bakery space, the brand has leveraged unique distribution partnerships to grow its presence. Most recently, Martin’s teamed up with distributor Dot Foods to launch its famous potato rolls and bread products to new markets.
"This partnership will help restaurants, regardless of size, acquire Martin's Potato Roll and Bread products. We are excited to offer this additional sourcing option to our current and potential customers," said Terry Lushbaugh, Food Service Manager of Martin's.
Martin's works with broad-line distributors to take its products across the nation to restaurants and foodservice institutions. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the industry, it is important that foodservice customers are able to buy in smaller quantities to help recover and build their businesses back up. Dot Foods can help Martin's customers do that.
Dot Foods is one of North America's largest food industry redistributors that services wholesalers and distributors across a broad range of products. Its online ordering portal, Dot Expressway, is currently offering 16 Martin's products available for purchase. According to a press release, Dot Foods has seven stocked items and nine special order items. Stocked items include: Martin's 12-Sliced Slider Potato Rolls, Martin's Sandwich Potato Rolls, Martin's 4-Inch and 5-Inch Potato Rolls, Martin's Long Potato Rolls (ie., hot dog buns), Martin's Dinner Potato Rolls, and Martin's sesame-seeded Big Marty's.
Martin's products have long been a favorite among foodservice venues due to their soft, pillowy texture and buttery-sweet flavor profile that pairs very well with many recipes, especially iconic barbecue and burger recipes. Martin's focuses on baking the best products by using the highest quality ingredients, such as high protein, unbleached wheat flour, real milk, potatoes, butter, and pure cane sugar. The company refuses to use high fructose corn syrup and other cheaper ingredients because it believes that high quality ingredients make a better, tastier, healthier product. These premium ingredients result in a plush, slightly-sweet bun that complements both savory and sweet sandwiches and meals.
Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc.® is a family owned and operated consumer goods company headquartered in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, with a second bakery in Valdosta, Georgia. The Martin's Company focuses on baking high-quality bread and roll products using high-quality ingredients. It is rigorously dedicated to extraordinary taste, quality, and customer service that proudly represents its legacy of cherished eating experiences and truly sets it apart from its competitors. Since the 1950s, the business has expanded from a home garage business into two commercial baking plants and continues to grow and flourish in areas of established distribution.
