Sysco celebrates grand opening of new state-of-the-art distribution and culinary center

Sysco Corporation has announced the grand opening of Sysco Allentown, a new 454,000 square foot, state-of-the-art distribution center in Northampton, PA. The new location will bring nearly 250 career opportunities to the community and bring Sysco's industry-leading service and solutions to the Lehigh Valley, Northeast PA, Poconos and Northern New Jersey.

"​Our team at Sysco Allentown is excited to bring customers in these important regions more ​of the best in foodservice with ​our team of industry experts, culinary professionals, on-trend products, and tailored delivery solutions," said Global Chief Operating Officer, Greg Bertrand. "In addition, Sysco's Recipe for Growth strategy, including investments in Shop, our e-commerce platform, and other customer-focused programs like Sysco Your Way and our Perks are also helping drive our growth. Our strategy also includes investing in our specialty meat, produce, and Italian companies, as well as ensuring we provide the right assortment for Asian cuisine."

Sysco Allentown features a top-of-the-line culinary center for collaborating with local customers to test and develop menus. Customers will also have access to Sysco Perks!, the company's free loyalty program. Qualifying members receive deliveries up to six days per week, exclusive offers and rewards, and up to $6,000 worth of industry-leading restaurant solutions.

The new facility will also expand the reach of the company's industry-leading Sysco Your Way (SYW) program, providing more local restaurants in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton and Princeton University the flexibility they need to grow. SYW provides late in the evening order cut-offs, daily deliveries, no order minimums and a dedicated sales and delivery team – all at no additional cost. It's the kind of service that one customer called "a game changer."

Bertrand continued, "Sysco Allentown not only provides new growth opportunities in the local market, it also frees up capacity for additional growth at Sysco Central Pennsylvania, Sysco Philadelphia and Sysco Metro New York."
