Sierra Nevada Cheese was the brainchild of Ben Gregerson. Before starting his own business, Ben had helped run the family creamery. Increasing competition in the commodity milk market forced Ben to reevaluate the future of the creamery. The idea of making artisan cheese and participating in the hands-on aspect of the business drove Ben to establish Sierra Nevada Cheese, in 1997. Ben believes the core values of Sierra Nevada Cheese, quality and services, are the reason for their success.

When Ben was faced with the opportunity to purchase a competitor he looked to 3CORE to help finance a business partnership that ultimately would help Sierra Nevada Cheese become even more competitive in the market.

"I was searching for a creative way of financing the additional line of business, when 3CORE stepped in to help." Ben said. "They gave us the opportunity to buy a product similar to ours which more than doubled our production of cream cheese." - Ben Gregerson, Sierra Nevada Cheese

Ben found the staff of 3CORE to be friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful during the financing process.
