Last week, Johnsonville Sausage hosted a groundbreaking ceremony at its new Watertown location, 1222 Perry Way. The event was well attended by local businesses, Watertown city government employees and representatives from state organizations. The 63,000-square-foot building, which was purchased in August and is the former home to Multi-Color Corp., will support Johnsonville's fresh sausage operations. The company notes that, with the new facility, 30 jobs will be created in the next year, with the potential for more.

In May of this year, Johnsonville experienced a loss in Watertown when its facility at 104 E. Division St. suffered a fire that caused extensive damage to the building and the equipment. Obviously, the fire caused a huge disruption for not only the company but its employees as well.
