MARS INC

Mars, Incorporated is an American global manufacturer of confectionery, pet food, and other food products and is ranked as the 3rd largest privately held company in the United States by Forbes.

Headquartered in McLean, unincorporated Fairfax County, Virginia, USA, the company is entirely owned by the Mars family. Mars operates in six business segments in the U.S.: Chocolate (Hackettstown, New Jersey), Petcare (Franklin, Tennessee), Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company (Chicago, Illinois), Food (Los Angeles, California), Drinks (West Chester, Pennsylvania), and Symbioscience (Germantown, Maryland).

Mars was founded by Frank C. Mars and is a company that is mainly known for its confectionery such as Milky Way, M&M's, Twix, Skittles, Snickers, and the Mars bar. 

Orbit gum is among the most popular brands, managed by the Mars subsidiary brand Wrigley. During World War II, Wrigley was selling their eponymous gum only to soldiers, while Orbit was the gum made available to the public. Though abandoned shortly after the war, about 60 years later Orbit made a comeback in America during the gum craze.

Frank C. Mars, whose mother taught him to hand dip candy, sold candy by age 19. The Mars Candy Factory he started in 1911 with Ethel V. Mars, his second wife, in Tacoma, Washington, ultimately failed but it had already become a large employer, producing and selling fresh candy wholesale.  

Forrest Mars, son of Frank Mars and his first wife who was also named Ethel, was inspired by a popular type of milkshake in 1923, to introduce the Milky Way bar, advertised as a "chocolate Malted Milk in a candy bar", and became the best-selling candy bar.

In 1929, Frank moved the company to Chicago, Illinois and started full production in a plant which still exists today. In 1932, Forrest started Mars Limited in the United Kingdom and launched the Mars bar.
