Armed with a dream and an old family sausage recipe, Thomas and Ann Carroll founded Carrolls Sausage in Ashburn, GA in 1988. Their idea was simple: please customers with the finest, best tasting sausages around. Before long, the business was a hit. Every customer that passed through Thomas and Anns doors was impressed by a sausage recipe that had been passed down and refined for generations.
In 2001, Hugh Hardy, Jr. purchased the business (and its world-famous sausage recipe) from the Carroll family. A longtime Carrolls Sausage employee himself, Hugh had a deep passion for the business and a powerful vision to expand it. Over time, Carrolls Sausage grew to include more meats, hundreds of grocery items, dozens of home grown Southern condiments, and a hot foods counter that serves breakfast and lunch. What began as a small butcher shop became a full-fledged country store.
Now known as Carrolls Sausage & Country Store, Hughs business continues to satisfy thousands of customers every year. The store still makes its home in Ashburn, GA, but with a new location right off I-75. Situated on this busy interstate, Carrolls is an oasis for weary travelers moving through Georgia and Florida. The business has also settled in Albany, GA, Sylvester, GA and Thomaston, GA.
Carrolls Sausage & Country Store was founded on the belief that hard work, quality products, and superior service would build success. While the business may have grown, these core values remain the same. Carrolls still provides the best food and still puts a smile on the face of every customer.
Carrolls now makes over forty varieties of sausage using the old family recipe. We also make our own snack sticks and beef jerky available in over seven different flavors. We are an old fashioned butcher shop where we custom cut your meat to order. We carry beef and pork as well as specialty meats such as frog legs, quail, and rabbit.
