CHAMBERSBURG, Pa., June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc., is pleased to announce Martin's Famous Potato Rolls and Bread is on the road with Schweid & Sons as they take The Very Best Burger Truck on tour.
This summer, Schweid & Sons, a family owned and operated high-quality ground beef purveyor headquartered in Carlstadt, New Jersey, is taking The Very Best Burger to consumers via a branded food truck. The tour spans key retail areas on the East Coast and Midwest. Visitors to the food truck can try free samples of burgers, with each tour stop showcasing a unique and tailored burger build recipe. Fans can follow along via photos, videos, and recipes on social media, the Schweid & Sons blog, and a food truck tour event tracker.
"We're very pleased to be collaborating with Schweid & Sons in this way," says Julie Martin, social media manager of Martin's and 3rd generation Martin family member. "Our potato rolls are the number one branded hamburger roll in America, and Schweid & Sons prides themselves in offering high quality beef, so it makes perfect sense to work together with them on The Very Best Burger!"
The cultures of the two companies are surprisingly similar. Both family-owned and operated through the fourth generation, they are rigorously dedicated to providing high quality, great tasting food products. In fact, both Martin's rolls and Schweid & Sons beef have been used together in winning recipes in burger competitions nationwide.
"We're excited to embark on this tour with Martin's," says Jamie Schweid, President & CEO of Schweid & Sons. "Both of our companies share a common heritage rooted in family, quality, and a tradition for bringing consumers the very best. When it comes to what kind of roll to pair with a Schweid & Sons burger, the answer is a no-brainer: You go with Martin's."
From May until August, The Very Best Burger Truck is scheduled to visit several cities including Washington, DC; Indianapolis, IN; Buffalo, NY; Pittsburgh, PA; Atlanta, GA; Detroit, MI; Charlotte, NC; Syracuse, NY; and Philadelphia, PA. In each city, the food truck appears at various events such as food and music festivals, community events, and retail locations. Both Schweid & Sons and Martin's hope to gain new loyal fans as they visit with people who taste their great burger recipes and interact with their brand ambassadors.
