Packaged and private foods manufacturer Monogram Foods recently completed a project to convert a former Conagra facility in Dickson, TN into a new prepared foods production plant, Tennessee officials announced.

Operated by the firm’s subsidiary Monogram Assembled Foods, the Dickson plant will create 400 new jobs and manufacture a variety of meat snacks, appetizers, assembled sandwiches, fully cooked and raw bacon, corn dogs, USDA baked goods, and other convenience products.

“Our team members in Dickson will allow us to bring even more of your favorite convenience foods and appetizers to stores across the country,” Karl Schledwitz, the CEO of Monogram Assembled Foods, said in a release. “We look forward to bringing more jobs to the community and serving the Dickson area in many ways.”

Conagra revealed plans to shutter the facility in early 2020. Monogram Foods agreed to purchase the plant and keep it in operation during the conversion. Former Conagra employees were offered positions at the new facility.

Powder & Bulk Solids reported that Monogram purchased the Dickson plant in December 2021. The facility is now one of 11 manufacturing locations operated by the company.
