At what temperature should Martin’s® frozen products be stored?
Martin’s® recommends keeping products at 0 degrees F (-18 degrees C) until you are ready to use them.
How should Martin’s® frozen products be thawed for use?
Martin’s® frozen products are “thaw and serve.” When you are ready to use the frozen rolls, thaw them out by leaving them out at room temperature for 24 hours. Then they are ready to be served.
After thawing, how long will the frozen rolls last?
In a restaurant setting with many temperature variations, Martin’s® recommends using thawed products within 5 days of thawing for best results. Be sure to keep rolls away from places with extreme temperature fluctuation to keep the integrity of the product.
What is the difference between the fresh and frozen rolls?
Absolutely nothing! Our rolls, both fresh and frozen, are made with the same recipe. In taste tests, there is virtually no difference between rolls that are fresh off of the bakery line versus rolls that have been in the freezer. Having both a fresh and frozen model helps us get Martin’s® rolls into the hands of anyone who wants them both in the US and around the world.
I am thinking about using a certain Martin’s® product in my food service establishment, can I get samples to try?
Of course! We would be happy to supply samples of our products for you to try. We can ship samples anywhere in the United States. For anyone requesting samples internationally, shipping samples will be addressed on a case by case basis. Please contact us for additional questions and details.
