Thousands of restaurants rely on the breads and buns produced by Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe, a family-owned wholesaler based in Pennsylvania whose pillowy potato rolls have become the preferred sandwich base for countless chefs.
But now, restaurant owners were being asked to surrender their allegiance to Martin’s widely popular products after recent reports showed the family behind the company is a supporter, financially and otherwise, of Doug Mastriano, the controversial Republican nominee for governor of Pennsylvania.
Mastriano won his primary in May, beating out eight other candidates for the GOP nomination. Endorsed by former president Donald Trump, Mastriano has embraced the baseless claims that Trump won the 2020 presidential election.
