In 1893, he saw chocolate being made and spent years looking for a correct recipe for his chocolate. As his businesses grew, he added homes and towns for his employees. He and his wife established a school for orphand boys. He provided jobs, gave to charities, supported education, and made aailable cultural opportunities.
