Monogram Foods Named to Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Private Companies for Seventh Straight Year

Memphis, TN, August 23, 2015 --( Monogram Foods, a leading manufacturer and marketer of high-quality meat snacks and other food products, today announced that for the seventh consecutive year, the company has been named to the the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies List.

With a three year growth rate of 96 percent and revenues of $340.5 million for 2014, the company was listed at number 3,411, up from number 4,018 a year ago. The growth can be attributed to facility expansions at all of Monogram Foods’ plants. Since December 2014, Monogram Foods has invested $43.7 million in plant expansions and upgrades for the Martinsville, VA. facility, creating over 300 new jobs. In April 2015, Monogram invested $9 million in expansions to its Bristol, Ind. facility.

“At Monogram, we attribute our outstanding growth to our team members. We are honored and extremely excited to be included on the Inc. 5000 list for an astonishing seventh straight year, and look forward to continuing our record of growth and job creation in the years to come,” stated Karl Schledwitz, Chairman and CEO of Monogram Foods.

Monogram Foods also announced in July that it had acquired Golden County Foods in Plover, WI, a frozen appetizer business with approximately $100 million annual sales, 550 employees, and two production facilities. This acquisition came after the Inc 5000 deadline and was therefore not included in the company’s growth ranking.
