A company that specializes in making “comfort foods” will be providing some more economic comfort to Elkhart County.

Monogram Foods plans on adding 74 new jobs by next year when it renovates its 104,000-square-foot facility at 605 Kesco Drive in Bristol, according to a press release.

The Memphis, Tennessee-based company is investing $5.3 million to renovate the facility so it can add a new mini corn dog production line, including installing new equipment for the making and packaging of the corn dogs.

Renovations are already underway, along with hiring for those new positions. You can apply here.

“As a national company with locations across the country, Monogram Foods had choices on where to locate these new jobs, and after considering its options this company keeps choosing Indiana,” said Governor Mike Pence. “Today’s news marks the second time in the last year that Monogram Foods has committed to adding new jobs in Indiana. Monogram Foods and companies across Indiana are thriving in our state’s affordable, low-tax business climate, which has helped us add nearly 150,000 new Hoosier jobs just since 2013.”

What Pence is referring to is a $13 million investment last summer at is Bristol location. 75 jobs are being dded as part of that expansion. The company employs over 350 Hoosiers.

The Indiana Economic Development Corporation has offered $200,000 in conditional tax credits to Monogram Foods, pending they fulfill their hiring promise. The town of Bristol also may extend tax credits.
