National Corn Dog Day
March 18 is the annual National Corn Dog Day! If you’ve enjoyed a delightful, batter wrapped golden corn dog recently, there’s a good chance Memphis-based Monogram Foods made it. That’s right! Monogram is the largest producer of retail private label corn dogs in the United States!
Monogram Foods, which employs 95 people at its Memphis Support Center and over 2,700 people company-wide carefully crafts private label corn dogs carried by an array of local retail and food service customers. A long-time Memphis favorite, Monogram’s own King Cotton corn dogs can be found around town at Superlo, Cash Saver, Piggly Wiggly and Big Star.
Corn dogs, mini corn dogs and pancake & sausage on a stick are produced at Monogram’s plant in Bristol, IN which cranks out over 1.5 million corn dogs per day! Monogram just upgraded its plant and will now make 20 million pounds of mini corn dogs a year. That’s a lot of corn dogs! Monogram Foods acquired its Bristol, IN plant in 2012
So take minute to enjoy a hot, battered-with-love corn dog and support a local Memphis business!
