Monogram Assembled Foods Plans Dickson, Tennessee, Production Facility

Monogram Assembled Foods, will invest $53.5 million to establish new operations in Dickson, Tennessee. The project is expected to create nearly 400 new jobs.

The company 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.

“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, said.

Founded in 2004, Monogram Foods is a privately held, Memphis, Tennessee-based manufacturer and marketer of packaged and value-added foods. Today, the company has more than 3,000 employees and operates 11 manufacturing facilities in seven states.

“More than $12 billion has been invested in Tennessee by manufacturing companies since 2016. Monogram Foods’ $53.5 million investment in Dickson County will strengthen that figure while also enhancing our state’s business-friendly climate and reputation as a leader in the manufacturing sector,” noted TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe.

The Dickson operations will operate similarly to Monogram’s other ten 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.
