Heinz was founded in Sharpsburg (a suburb of Pittsburgh), Pennsylvania, in 1869 by entrepreneur Henry John Heinz. The first Heinz product was bottled horseradish made from Henry Heinz’s mother’s own recipe. Ketchup didn’t come along until seven years later in 1876.
While riding a train in New York City in 1896, Henry Heinz saw a sign advertising 21 styles of shoes, which he thought was clever. Although Heinz was manufacturing more than 60 products at the time, Henry thought 57 was a lucky number. So, he began using the slogan “57 Varieties” in all his advertising.
Henry Heinz attracted traffic to his 1893 Chicago World’s Fair booth by offering a free gift — a small green pickle charm, which later became a pin. The pickle pin is one of the most famous merchandising giveaways in history and has become a popular collectible.
