NASHVILLE, TN — Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Monogram Assembled Foods, LLC (Monogram Foods) officials announced Feb. 3 the company has established new operations in Dickson, TN and will create nearly 400 new jobs. The deal indicates a $53.5 million investment in the Dickson community.
Monogram Foods purchased a building formerly owned by Conagra, which announced in early 2020 its plans to close the facility. As part of Monogram Foods’ acquisition, the facility never closed, and the company offered employment to Conagra’s existing employees so that no jobs were lost during the transition.
Monogram Foods’ Dickson operations will operate similarly to its other 10 U.S. manufacturing facilities, which offer a full range of meat snacks, appetizers, assembled sandwiches, fully cooked and raw bacon, corn dogs, USDA baked goods and other convenience products.
“Dickson is a thriving community with a dynamic workforce, and we are proud to call it home for our newest location. Our team members at Monogram Foods in Dickson will allow us to bring even more of your favorite convenience foods and appetizers to stores across the country. We look forward to bringing more jobs to the community and serving the Dickson area in many ways. A huge thanks to the state of Tennessee, TVA, and Dickson County for helping make this a reality.” – Karl Schledwitz, CEO, Monogram Assembled Foods, LLC
