Yogurt entrepreneur tastes success

Entrepreneur of the Century

A Turkish immigrant who five years ago started making Greek-style yogurt in an aging plant in Chenango County on Wednesday was named the nations top entrepreneur by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Chobani Inc. founder Hamdi Ulukaya used a small business loan in 2005 to buy the former Kraft Food plant in the town of Columbus, where he and about 50 employees later began making a specialty yogurt that was sold in just a single Long Island grocery store.
