Freshie's Lobster

Park City’s own Freshies Lobster finishes 2nd at the “World’s Best Lobster Roll” competition over the weekend.

Freshie’s Lobster was one of ten semi-finalists at the second annual Down East Magazine’s “World’s Best Lobster Roll” competition in Portland, Maine.

Over 400 people paid for entry to the event. They tasted each of the 10 entries and then voted electronically.

This year BeetleCat of Atlanta won the most votes and took home the top prize. Freshie’s Lobster finished 2nd in the voting, Freshies won the inaugural competition last year.

Ben and Lorin Smaha moved to Park City in 2005 and started selling lobster rolls in 2008. The Smaha’s moved to Utah from New England but missed one aspect of home in particular.

“Ben is from Maine, and I’m from New Hampshire, but we did meet out here and felt like we were just lacking a good lobster roll around” Lorin Smaha explains.
