If you're eating at a restaurant, you're probably getting food that was delivered by Sysco. This giant company is the leading distributor of food and related products and services to restaurants, nursing homes, hospitals, hotels, motels, schools, colleges, cruise ships, sports parks and summer camps - wherever a meal is prepared away from home.

Sysco operates 194 distribution facilities in the U.S., Canada, Ireland and Puerto Rico serving over 425,000 customers with over 400,000 products, including 40,000 Sysco-brand products. It distributes a wide variety of fresh, frozen and specialty meats, seafood, poultry, fruits and vegetables, bakery products, canned and dry foods, paper and disposable products, sanitation items, dairy foods, beverages, kitchen and tabletop equipment, medical and surgical supplies and hotel operating supplies.

Sysco is an acronym for Systems and Services Company. The company has embraced the use of technology to better serve its customers.

Sysco announced in 2013 it would merge with competitor US Foods paying $3 billion in stock and $500 million in cash. The company withdrew the offer in June 2015 after the Federal Trade Commission said it would not allow the deal.

In fiscal 2014, Sysco reported record revenues of $46.5 billion, up 4.7% from 2013. Net income was $931.5 million.

Sysco was founded by John Baugh in 1969 and went public in 1970.
