With an eye toward staying balanced on the cutting edge, Sysco Corporation recently revealed the grand opening of a new state-of-the-art distribution and culinary center: Sysco Allentown. The 454,000-square-foot facility in Northampton, Pennsylvania, will bring nearly 250 career opportunities to the community and bring Sysco’s service and solutions to the Lehigh Valley, Northeast PA, Poconos, and Northern New Jersey.

Greg Bertrand, Global Chief Operating Officer, Sysco“​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.

“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,” Bertrand continued.

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.

Our team will be sure to follow this and other expansions shaking up the potential reach of our industry.
