"Give them quality. That’s the best kind of advertising in the world.“
Milton S. Hershey
Still not discouraged, he moved back to Lancaster, PA and opened up another candy shop. This time he was successful!!!!
In 1893, at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Milton discovered the art of chocolate making. He had machines shipped to Lancaster to make chocolate coating for his caramels.
Because the demand for chocolate was growing at this time, Milton created the Hershey Chocolate Company and began perfecting his chocolate recipe containing the perfect mixture of milk, cocoa and sugar.
The Hershey bar was soon shipped all over the country and enjoyed by millions of people, not just the wealthy.

Milton S. Hershey
Milton not only wanted to se e his chocolate company thrive, but he also wanted to see his workers and their hometown thrive as well. He knew he needed to treat his workers fairly and give them a comfortable and pleasant place to live. This in turn would lead to better, hardworking, happy and dedicated employees. To provide for their welfare, he created a town, named after Hershey himself, and added a community building, a department store, swimming pools, schools, and an amusement park.
In 1909, Milton and his wife, Catherine, created the Milton Hershey Industrial School, a school for orphan boys who can learn how to be good, young men and work in useful trades.
