LEARN MORE ABOUT US
The idea for The Lobsta Run began back in 2016 when a close friend and I planned a summer road trip to Maine to relax and bring back fresh, live lobsters for our friends and family. In our first year, we brought back 125 live lobsters. Everyone loved the lobster and word quickly spread of their quality and affordability. The Lobsta Run grew as order numbers doubled every year! Last year, The Lobsta Run made three trips to Maine, and my “sternmen” and I brought back 4,550 lobsters!
Over the last five years, I have developed a great working relationship with a lobster fisherman from Cape Neddick, Maine who supplies the lobster for The Lobsta Run. Our lobsters are seasoned by storing them overnight in a 40-degree chilling tank. Seasoning the lobster reduces their core temperature and prepares them for their ten-hour journey in my custom-built refrigerated trailer. This process allows me to bring you the freshest, liveliest, and best tasting lobster available in western Pennsylvania at an affordable price!
Thanks for your business and hope to see you soon!
