Odom’s Tennessee Pride Sausage has started a 33,000-sq.-ft. expansion to its meat packaging plant in Dickson, TN.

The expansion allows Tennessee Pride to add up to four new packaging lines for its popular sausage and biscuit convenience sandwich products. Sales have grown by 35% over the past year.

The $15-million expansion will double plant capacity and is targeted for completion by Aug. 1, 2005. A second phase of expansion will be completed by mid-year 2006.
