Great Past, Great Future


A History of Innovation

Sysco was founded in 1969 and became a public company in 1970 based on the premise that the foodservice industry was ready for a more expansive distribution system that combined national reach with local service. Since our inception, Sysco has continued to innovate by developing our own strong brands, adopting technology to improve supply and delivery systems, and initiating business practices that create strong customer loyalty.

Technology Platform

Today, we’re in the process of creating a more efficient technology platform and even better customer experience through a carefully managed, end-to-end business technology initiatives that include enterprise resources planning, increased centralization of administration services, mobile and web-based customer solutions that allow for multiple customer interaction points.


Category Management

Through our Category Management initiative, we can more effectively leverage our scale, while also increasing the value, variety and innovation of the products we offer to our customers. Through strategic supplier partnerships, we share customer insights to enhance product innovation and our response to trends, which we believe will serve as a future growth platform. 



Operating Initiatives

Sysco has multiple initiatives underway targeted at lowering operating expenses.
