Conecuh Sausage plans $58 million expansion

The new facility in Andalusia will create 110 jobs

Conecuh Sausage, maker of hickory smoked sausages in Conecuh County, is going to invest $57.8 million to open a second production facility in Andalusia, creating 110 jobs.

Founded in Evergreen in 1947, Conecuh Sausage is a family-owned business that produces meats with a patented blend of seasonings. Its products are sold directly through the company’s online and gift stores, as well as through local grocery stores, national retailers and independent distributors.

“Conecuh Sausage is a landmark homegrown brand, and I am thrilled to see that the company continues to grow and thrive right here in ‘Sweet Home Alabama,’” said Gov. Kay Ivey.

Conecuh Sausage owners John Crum Sessions, president, and his son, John Henry Sessions, said, “We are eager to join the Andalusia community and add jobs and growth to the local economy while remaining in the state of Alabama. We are thrilled with the opportunity to expand our production facilities and increase distribution to serve our loyal customers.”

Conecuh Sausage looked at other locations in the Midwest before deciding to remain in its home state.
