Statement from Mayor Emanuel on Mars Wrigley Confectionery

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

With today’s announcement by Mars, Chicago is now home to the world’s largest confectionery company. Mars Wrigley Confectionery could not have chosen a better city to establish their global hub. Thanks to recent headquarters relocations by companies like McDonalds, Kraft Heinz, ConAgra and Oscar Mayer, Chicago is staying at the forefront of the global economy, the center of the food industry, and the leading edge of the culinary world. I look forward to a sweeter future for Chicagoans and consumers everywhere and welcome Mars Wrigley Confectionery to Chicago.
