When Roy-Pitz expanded to Philadelphia, one of the first menu decisions was – we must have Benders Potatoes. Not only are they the best, but serving them and knowing that we know where these potatoes came from, and our friends were the ones putting in the time to produce them, we knew the story was going to ring true to our customers and be true to what Roy-Pitz is about as a brand.

We grew up in Chambersburg, a small town small enough where you know most of the folks by what they do. Over generations and through friends and family, you either go to school with, play sports with, or work together with the people who run the businesses and are the local representatives of their craft.  Its a real asset to have a local connection with the people who own and run business that support and complement your own.

One of those businesses is Benders Potatoes.  We went to school with the youngest Benders, spent time on their farm growing up, and saw our own parents patronize their business.  When we first built out the Stube kitchen, we knew we didn’t just need to serve french fries, we wanted a great product, with a strong local connection and individuals we were comfortable doing business with. Stemming from friendship and a strong local connection, the ability to work and grow together is strengthened by a relationship that goes beyond our day to day business.

There are thousands of options for french fries – probably easier, maybe even cheaper, but it is these instances where we look to find a more beneficial relationship that delivers not only on taste, but the deeper meaning behind what we want to be as a brand – supporting local individuals dedicated to their art.
