The Hershey Company - statistics & facts

The Hershey Company - commonly called Hershey’s - is a producer of chocolates, sweets, and mints from the United States. The company was founded in 1894 by Milton S. Hershey in his hometown of Derry Church in Pennsylvania. Derry Church was renamed Hershey in 1906 following the growing popularity of the company’s products. Hershey, PA remains the company’s headquarters. Ever since its inception, Hershey's has grown to become one of the leading confectionery companies in the world.

Company financials

Hershey’s generates annual net sales of over 8 billion U.S. dollars worldwide. With the exception of one year, the company’s net sales have been growing since 2006. Currently, Hershey’s has a workforce of around 15,200 full-time employees globally. Compared to last year, this is the first increase of full-time employee numbers in multiple years. Company operations are centered around the U.S. market. With less than a billion U.S. dollars in sales, only a fraction of company sales were made internationally.

Hershey's portfolio

The company’s product portfolio encompasses chocolate, non-chocolate, chewing gums, ice cream, and milk drinks. Hershey’s well-known brands include Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Hershey’s Milk Chocolate, and Hershey's Kisses, which are amongst the most widely consumed chocolate or candy brands in the U.S. — all of them outsold Milky Way and Twix among a variety of other brands. Almost 32 million Americans treated themselves to one or two servings of Hershey’s Kisses in the past 30 days, approximately ten percent of the population.
