When Joseph Vona decided to buy a dairy plant in 1946, he figured he'd have to roll up his sleeves. In addition to having to engage in fierce competition with at least half-a-dozen dairies in the county, Joseph had a handicap - he had no experience in the dairy industry. When he returned from serving in the army in WWII, Joseph was looking for a business opportunity when he answered a one and a half by one inch ad in the Frederick News-Post. Perhaps he took it as a good sign when he learned the business opportunity for sale was a proven quantity - The Excelsior Sanitary Dairy, the oldest in Frederick, founded in 1894.
