Monogram Foods acquires Golden County Foods
Monogram Foods, a leading manufacturer and marketer of beef jerky, corn dogs, pre-cooked bacon and other value-added meat products, announces today that it is the successful bidder for Golden County Foods in Plover, WI, a frozen appetizer business with approximately $100 million annual sales, 550 employees, and two production facilities. This transaction is slated to close in mid-July.
With this acquisition, Monogram Foods now owns manufacturing plants in six states, all of which have been acquired by the company over the past nine years. During that period, the company has grown from 15 employees to over 2,300 with the addition of Golden County Foods, while simultaneously increasing revenues from $8 million in 2004 to over $500 million in 2015 with the Golden County acquisition.
“This acquisition helps to strengthen our position and commitment to the frozen foods category. The acceptance of our bid marks another important milestone in the growth of Monogram Foods and our commitment to not only save but also to create jobs in the markets in which we operate,” stated Monogram’s Chairman and CEO Karl Schledwitz.
