Emil J. Brach
Emil J. Brach (1859−1947) got his first major job in Chicago at a candy making company, where he eventually became a very high-income salesman, managing to save up $15,000 to invest in a failed candy manufacturing company. He was born in the United States by 1859 to German immigrants.
Deciding he could do better on his own, Brach started his own candy store/factory, Brach's Confections in 1904, in Chicago, which rapidly became a success, moving to a larger building within two years. His fourteen-year-old son, Frank, was the company's first salesman, securing their first large customer, Siegel, Cooper & Co..
Brach continued to expand his company into a nationwide business, and worked at it until the day of his death in 1947.
