    Made Locally: Gerhart Coffee

    The Gerhart Coffee Company has been roasting coffee in Lancaster for 139 years, with roots that go back to 1880 when Paul Gerhart started the first roasting facility in Lancaster County. They’ve set a standard of quality by providing flavorful cups of coffee to Central PA’s restaurants, cafes, and businesses. Gerhart Coffee has recently partnered with Founders Market & Co. to bring their locally roasted coffee to retail shelves, grocery stores, and markets. Founders Market walks alongside brands to connect them to the retailers and consumers who want unique products businesses like Gerhart have to offer.

    Scott Martino, co-founder and CEO of Founders Market with Darrel Burns, owner and roaster at Gerhart Coffee.
