During this period in our history few women worked outside the home, and those that did were often grossly underpaid and slaved in conditions that were pitifully unhealthy. Huyler's factories were models of egalitarian reform which was very rare in that time. Most of Hulyer's 2000 employees were women and given managable workloads, paid holidays, medical aid and disability compensation.
By the time the business was sold by the family in 1925 fourteen factories produced the chocolates that were sold in fifty-one Huyler's Stores and soda fountains throughout the East Coast while its products were sold in over 5000 small businesses nationwide. Despite the rapid expansion Huyler's chocolates were never mass-produced. The business relied on maintaining its reputation for supplying the best chocolate in America.
