Become a Hershey Partnership Member

Welcome to Hershey, the sweet little town with a lot to offer!

The Hershey Partnership, your Hershey PA Chamber of Commerce, is dedicated to serving businesses that thrive on local as well as tourist commerce. The Hershey Partnership members serve businesses, residents, and visitors. There are many commonalities between businesses who serve those visiting the area and those who live here, but there are also distinct differences. As an organization, we pride ourselves in our ability to serve all of our members’ unique needs – whether they be Hershey restaurants, services, hotels, attractions, or other types of businesses. One way we do this is through our publication Your Guide to Chocolate Town, USA, a great reference for both Hershey residents and visitors.
