The story of The Hershey Company:
This the brain child of Milton Hershey, who not only invented the milk chocolate formula for Hershey bars and kisses, but grew a thriving Pennsylvania town around his operations.
Just know this: Hershey is still one of the largest chocolate manufacturers in the world.
It runs a mega store in the cross roads of the world, New York’s Times Square.
It not only sells candy bars…
…and even bought out a major, neighboring competitor…
…in 1963 for a mere 23 million dollars when Reese’s annual sales were 14 million.
The childless Hershey also founded what is now the Milton S. Hershey School …
…providing free education, food, health care and clothing to needy kids.
And it’s all within a thriving town where the street lamps look like candy…
…with a familiar brand name: Hershey, Pennsylvania.
