Milton Hershey

What a fascinating story about a true American entrepreneur. Milton Hershey discovered that success does come over night. Having failed more than succeeded and out of money by the age of 30 he would become one of the wealthiest and well-known men of his time, not only building a successful business, but taking care of his people by constructing a charming and multi-faceted town in which to live, play and work.

Having failed many times at building a candy business, Milton started to devote his efforts to learning the art of creating quality caramel and chocolate. These efforts of learning how to make candy and the persistence of becoming a successful businessman finally paid off when he created a caramel company. He sold the caramel company to focus on chocolate-making which lead to the company we all know today.

Milton was not just set on building a business in which to become rich. He believed in order to have a successful business you need to take care of your people and engineered the town of Hershey to provide the citizens plenty of schools for education, transportation, housing and entertainment.

Hershey Chocolate History

Back at the turn of the century in the early 1900s chocolate was a luxury item for the wealthy. Milton Hershey had the vision of creating chocolate products that anyone could afford and with that idea came mass production of his world renown candy bars and other chocolate shaped products at the time. Hershey® KISSES came to fruition in 1907 and in 1921 the “plume” insert was added to signify it was an official Hershey quality product.

Over the next few decades the company expanded into new products such as Mr. GOODBAR, Hershey syrup, chocolate chips and the KRACKEL Bar. Hershey supplied H.B. Reese’s candy company the chocolate to cover his peanut butter cups who also was located in Hershey. After a good and long-standing relationship between the two companies and seven years after Reese’s passing, the company was sold to Hershey.

Through expansion and the acquiring of many other companies or the purchase of the rights to others Hershey today produces many types of candies and also grocery products and maintains a workforce of about 14,000 employees and gross multi billions of dollars a year.
