One of the biggest chocolate manufacturers in the world, Hershey’s was founded by Milton S. Hershey in 1894. He started out working as a confectioner in 1873 and opened a candy shop in Philadelphia, where he worked for six years.
After seeing chocolate-making machines for the first time at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Hershey sold his caramel company for $1,000,000 (around $31,108,000 today!). He had decided to concentrate on chocolate. When people asked him about this transition, he said, "Caramels are just a fad, but chocolate is a permanent thing."
