What else should I know?

Martin’s Famous Potato Roll products forged a new category in the supermarket and established the gold standard for potato roll taste and quality. Various competitors in recent years have attempted to produce a “potato roll” that matches the taste, quality, and freshness of Martin’s, but if market share is a fair indicator, none have measured up. Martin’s was the number one brand of potato rolls on the day they created the category, and they continue to dominate in the markets where they have established full distribution. In fact, some jokingly say that when this bread reaches its expiration date, it’s still fresher than the competitor’s bread the day it is delivered.
