Hamdi Ulukaya is a true rags to riches story – a beautiful example of the American Dream come to life.

He founded Chobani, a $4Bln company and he personally has an estimated net worth of $1.8 billion.

So, who is he?

– Hamdi Ulukaya was born in 1972 in Turkey.

– Moved to the US in 1994 to further his studies.

– During a visit, his father persuaded him to import the family’s feta cheese from Turkey. The imported cheese became popular and Hamdi subsequently opened a small wholesale feta cheese plant called Euphrates in New York.

– He then decided to make an alternative to American-style yogurt, which he believed was too sugary, watery, and artificial.

– This eventually became Chobani.

– Now Chobani has approximately 3,000 employees and brings in about $1 billion in revenue.

– Ulukaya received many awards and recognition over the years. Specifically:

– Was selected from 47 global candidates to be the World Entrepreneur of the Year in 2013, an award begun by Ernst & Young.

– Honorary doctorates from several universities.

– TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2017.

– One of the 100 greatest business minds as part of the Forbes’ centennial celebration.

When Hamdi migrated to the US, he didn’t speak a word of English. He didn’t let the fact hold him back. Instead, he was determined to live the American dream. He considers America his true home.
