Best friends get IDA nod to move their businesses under one roof

Two best friends are merging their businesses and putting them under one roof with the help of a Suffolk County Industrial Development Agency deal.

While the friends are close, their products are not: One sells optical lens cleaners; the other makes natural-ingredient granola.

Together, Koala Optics of Huntington Station and Yoleez Snacks of Bay Shore plan to purchase and outfit a 33,500-square-foot manufacturing space at 10 Commerce Dr. in Hauppauge. The firms plan to spend nearly $8 million on the move and expansion.
