50 Years of Success: Celebrating Sysco and Their Schertz Investment
Thursday, October 29, 2020
One of the first sights that greets people traveling through Schertz on Interstate 35 is a massive 635,000 square foot blue building that houses one of Schertz’ largest companies: Sysco. This facility may only be a piece of Sysco’s global footprint, but its impact on the local region, particularly during COVID-19, is significant. As Sysco celebrates their 50th anniversary as a company, it is helpful to dive into their role in the local economy and our food ecosystem.
Sysco is the global leader in selling, marketing, and distributing food and non-food products to restaurants, healthcare & educational facilities, lodging establishments, and other customers around the world. With over 320 distribution facilities worldwide, they keep pantries of all sizes stocked. Sysco also has one of the largest fleets of vehicles, which forms a highly efficient delivery network.
