Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe started in 1955 when Lloyd and Lois Martin converted their garage into a small bakery in Chambersburg, PA. They started selling their products at farmer's markets, and eventually they began taking their product wholesale to local grocery stores beginning in the 1960s. In 1984, Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe started its expansion into the New York market, beginning with Pathmark in the Yonkers and Scarsdale areas. Martin's had already been servicing the retail chain in the New Jersey market when the district manager at the time opened the door to the New York market. Since then, Martin's has expanded into all major New York metro retail chains.
