Excerpt: "When his aunt died, Spiliotopoulos took over the Standard Cheese Company, also known as the Cheese Factory, and quickly expanded it, adding a sales and tasting room. During peak production years, Standard Cheese produced 8,000 pounds a day under the Cheese Factory label, using milk from the Central Valley and introducing the country's first jack cheese with Valley-grown peppers. On Saturdays and Sundays, customers lined up for blocks for tasting treats and to buy his 3-pound Wheel of Cheese products."(Submitted on March 21, 2022.)
