Mars, Inc. History

Frank C. Mars opened The Mars Candy Factory in 1911 with his second wife, Ethel Mars, in Tacoma, Washington. The factory produced fresh candy which the company sold wholesale. This venture failed.

In 1920 Frank, now back in his home state of Minnesota, founded Mar-O-Bar Co., which is the earliest incarnation of the present company.

Frank’s son, Forrest Mars, introduced the Milky Way bar, which became the company’s best-selling candy bar.

In 1929 Frank moved the company to Chicago.

In 1932 Forrest expanded to the United Kingdom. The same year, Mars launched the Mars bar.

Today Mars continues to be a family business, now owned by fourth-generation Mars family members.  The company is now run by non-family members.

Mars, Inc. is an American global manufacturer whose global brands include M&M’s, Snickers, 3 Musketeers, Mars bar, Dove, Milky Way, Skittles, and Twix. The company also makes Uncle Ben’s rice, pet food made under the Pedigree, Sheba, and Whiskas labels, Seeds of Change organic food, Klix and Flavia beverage systems, and owns the world’s largest chewing gum maker, Wm. Wrigley Company.

Mars, Inc. is #3 on the Forbes list of America’s Largest Private Companies. Mars has 65,000 employees and had $30 billion in revenue in 2011.

After several emails today I am very upset and disappointed with Mars customer care.which did not solve my compliant. After buying the Super Sunday Cinema Tickets Promotion packets and collected the correct number of vouchers codes to claim 2 cinema tickets and did in the valid dates when on the mars sweet Sundays website .vouchers all went through and waited for the confirmation email to print off to use . Waited and never got them so emailed today and got nowhere. Waste of time and money . puts you off doing it again. Mars please get your act together it only 2 cinema tickets you could have given me instead all I got is questions and a person who did not believe me after putting all the info through. Makes me angry and very disappointed.

What supermarket will replace Mars on Loch raven and Northern Pkwy? I love Mars . Are there any consideration for Seniors and families without cars?There’s no other markets close by. Please reconsider. Let us have Mars. Baltimore City needs and deserves a decent caring store like Msrs. Thank you

I’ve been burying the 40 ounce packages of Mars Chocolate Favorites Minis and there are hardly any Milky Way in the package at all. At first I thought it was just a fluke but it continues to happen. Is there a reason for this? (the bag is filled with Snickers bars)
