Bob Laubscher, the founder of Laubscher Cheese Company, was born and raised on a farm in Iowa. As a teenager, Bob and his family moved to Sugarcreek, Ohio where he first went to work at Broad Run Dairy learning the trade of making Swiss cheese. He then worked with Fred Schneiter at Sugar-Creek Dairy. Bob served his country for 4 years oversea during WWII, participating in Invasion Day at Omaha Beach. When Bob was discharged from the army, he was unsure if he wanted to go back into the cheese business. He worked briefly at a couple different jobs and quickly realized that he wanted to return to his calling, the cheese industry. Bob went on to work at Pleasant View Dairy, Champion Dairy, and Farmerstown Cheese. In the evenings, Bob washed cheese for several different factories, which consisted of taking each wheel off the shelf, washing the rind with a wet cloth and salt, and returning it back to the shelf.
