CINCINNATI — SugarCreek, a food and bacon manufacturer, has announced plans to invest $10 million in a new production facility in Sharonville, Ohio. The expansion will allow SugarCreek to grow its line of bacon-related products and add 235 new jobs to the community.

As part of the renovation of the facility, SugarCreek said it will install new flooring and a new drain system, as well as asbestos abatement.

“We are thrilled to continue our growth in the great state of Ohio,” said Jennifer Richardson Hutcheson, chief relationship officer at SugarCreek. “Our very first facility opened in Washington Court House in 1966, and we are very proud to now open our seventh facility overall and fourth in Ohio. We are grateful to partner with both JobsOhio and REDI Cincinnati on this project and look forward to our continued growth in the region.”

In January 2020, SugarCreek received approval from the city of Dayton, Ohio, to redevelop a former Kroger store into another company warehouse. The Cincinnati-based company said Dayton’s SugarCreek facility produces only fully cooked bacon. The company started off in 1966 as a manufacturer of raw bacon.
