Place of Origin

Maker E.J. Brach & Sons

Maker Details Chicago IL. In 1904, Emil J. Brach opened his “Palace of Sweets” at North Avenue and Towne Street in Chicago. In 1922, the company built a large new plant on the city's West Side; this facility, the largest candy factory in the United States, soon employed hundreds of men and women. Between 1966 and 1986, Brach was owned by the American Home Products Corp. of New York; it was then purchased by Jacobs Suchard, a Swiss company. By the end of the 1980s, Brach was still the clear leader in the bulk candy market, and the company's 3,500 workers made it the leading employer on the city's West Side.
