Wrigley Company Anniversary


Recommended Posts

On April 1, 1891, the Wrigley Co. was founded in Chicago by William Wrigley, Jr.

The company sold laundry detergent and other soaps.

To spur sales, it started giving away free gum in each box.

Eventually, Wrigley realized there was money in the gum business and soap went out the door!
