The U.S. Small Business Administration recently announced that Chobani has been named an SBA Legacy Business. Chobani is one of 68 legacy businesses that got their start with help from the SBA and that are being recognized nationwide as part of the agency’s 70th anniversary celebrations.
“Chobani is the perfect company to receive our Legacy Recognition in New York state,” said SBA Atlantic Regional Administrator Marlene Cintron, who oversees SBA in New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Chobani began in Upstate New York with an SBA 504 loan, five employees and a mission to make better food for more people. Today, Chobani is a next generation food and beverage company with a mission of making high-quality and nutritious food accessible to more people, while elevating communities and making the world a healthier place.
Chobani is a values-driven, people-first company, and has been since its founding in 2005. The company employs over 2,500 people.
