Martin's Potato Chips is located in south central Pennsylvania which is considered by many to be the snack food capital of the world. Enjoying the benefit of the rich loamy soil, farmers had to find ways to use their excess crops. From the farm kitchen of Harry and Fairy Martin, back in 1941, a unique potato chip found its way into the hearts and homes of York County. Their business soon outgrew the kitchen. The Martin’s built a small factory and expanded their distribution from delivering fresh daily to market stands, to also selling to mom and pop grocery stores. In 1971 the business was sold to Ken and Sandy Potter with the Martin family remaining as employees. The Potters' had a dream of expanding the business outside the York area. By 1977 the delivery routes increased from one to five, covering York, Lancaster, Dauphin and Adams counties. As Martin’s grew through the 80’s and 90’s the combination of quality products and superior service proved to be successful. Today over 50 routes operate from the distribution facilities in Reading, Allentown, Williamsport, Lancaster and Hagerstown, MD to ensure products are delivered fresh daily. We also have distribution serving Pittsburgh, Altoona, Philadelphia, New York and Virginia. Mr. Potter retired in January of 2004. Elder son Ken Jr. is President\CEO and youngest son David is Vice President\Director of Route Sales. Using only the best chipping potatoes and maintaining high quality oils for frying are just two of the many factors that make Martin’s Potato Chips taste so great. Having a dedicated and motivated workforce has been the most important ingredient for our success over the years. All potato chips and popcorn are made in our 75,000 sq. ft. Thomasville facility which produces over one million bags each month. Other products distributed include Wege pretzels and a full line of corn products that are made locally for Martin’s.
