The Hershey Company - commonly called Hershey’s - is the leading manufacturer of chocolates in the United States. Focused on the production of chocolate, sweet and mints, 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 brand products. Hershey, PA remains the company’s headquarters.
The Hershey Company also produces non-chocolate or candy-based products like chewing gums, ice cream and milk drinks. Hershey’s is also licensed to produce Cadbury products as well as the Kit Kat bar and Rolo candies.
