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.
