After moving to New York from his native Turkey, Chobani’s founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya found that in America, yogurt just wasn’t as delicious and widely available as it was back home. He believed everyone deserved better options, so he set about making delicious, nutritious, natural and accessible Greek yogurt right here in the United States.
“Better food for more people.” It’s a simple precept, but one that drives Chobani forward every day. From that first revived yogurt factory in New Berlin, New York, to a gleaming state-of-the-art facility in Twin Falls, Idaho, to an international foothold in Dandenong, Australia and beyond – in the few short years since its debut, Chobani has climbed to the top of the yogurt category and turned Greek yogurt into a household staple.
With a growing team of thousands, Chobani strives to stay true to and honor Hamdi’s vision and goals for our company: To develop and foster meaningful relationships with those around us, to give back to our local and global communities, and to create one perfect cup of yogurt at a time. As a company, we’re proud to offer careers with limitless opportunities. We look for only the most passionate and hard-working people who will share this vision and help our rapidly growing company reach the next level. Chobani gives us all the chance to make a difference.

In 1960 the Burley plant roared to life providing business to local commerce, contracts for local farmers, and jobs to 300 people. At the time, the plant cost just over $2 million dollars to construct. Fast forward almost sixty years and the McCain Foods Burley plant is still a major center of commerce in the Mini-Cassia area, employing 550 employees, contracting locally with farmers and other businesses for potatoes, materials, and services, and actively supporting the community as a leading business partner in the Mini-Cassia area. The McCain Foods Burley Plant has a great history in the Mini-Cassia area, but the future looks just as bright. McCain Foods is investing in a large expansion that will cost more than $200 million and will require the addition of up to 180 employees.
