Sysco

Sysco Corporation is an American multinational corporation involved in marketing and distributing food products to restaurants, healthcare and educational facilities, hotels and inns, and other foodservice and hospitality businesses. The corporation is headquartered in the Energy Corridor district of Houston, Texas. Sysco, an acronym for Systems and Services Company, is the world's biggest broadline food distributor; it has more than 400,000 clients in a wide array of fields. Management consulting is also an integral part of their services. As of July 2, 2005, the corporation operated 170 facilities throughout the USA and Canada.The corporation was founded by Herbert Irving, John F. Baugh and Harry Rosenthal in 1969. The corporation became public on March 3, 1970. On July 20, 2009, Fortune magazine ranked Sysco #204 in the annual Fortune 500 corporations in world based on sales volume. On May 3, 2010, Fortune Magazine ranked Sysco as the 7th biggest Fortune 500 Company in Texas and 55th biggest in the US by total revenue. However, with the Sysco merger of the smaller US Foods announced in December 2013, the combined revenue of the two corporations will now give it a 27% share of last year's U.S. food-distribution market.Sysco competes with national distributors US Foods, Performance Food Group, and Edward Don and Company, as well as regional corporations such as Gordon Food Service, Ben E. Keith, Maines Paper & Food Service, and local foodservice distributors. Sysco is also the biggest non-oil related corporation in Houston and the 3rd biggest non-oil related corporation in Texas (Behind AT&T and Dell). In 2013, Sysco was involved in a scandal in which some locations were found to be using unrefrigerated drop sites. By April 2014, more than a dozen U.S. state attorneys general had raised competition concerns with Federal Trade Commission officials concerning Sysco Corp.'s $8.2 billion planned acquisition of its next-biggest food distribution rival, U.S. Foods Inc. The corporations have said the combined entity would have 25% of the U.S. food distribution market, but other estimates range as high as 35%.
