<italic>Paenibacillus konkukensis</italic> sp. nov., SK3146 is a novel strain isolated from a pig feed. Here, we present complete genome sequence of SK3146. The genome consists of a single circular genome measuring 7,968,964 bp in size with an average G+C content of 53.4%. Genomic annotation revealed that the strain encodes 151 proteins related to hydrolases (EC3), which was higher than those in <italic>Bacillus subtilis</italic> and <italic>Escherichia coli</italic>. Diverse kinds of hydrolases including galactosidase, glucosidase, cellulase, lipase, xylanase, and protease were found in the genome of SK3146, coupled with one bacteriocin encoding gene. The complete genome sequence of <italic>P. konkukensis</italic> SK3146 indicates the immense probiotic potential of the strain with nutrient digestibility and antimicrobial activity functions.
