Sysco Corporation announced in mid-November that it will eliminate minimum delivery size requirements for customers’ regularly scheduled delivery days as part of the company’s Restaurants Rising campaign. This change was effective on November 16 for all U.S. Broadline, FreshPoint, Buckhead Meat and Newport Meat customers.
The change, while applicable to both large and small customers, is especially helpful to independent restaurant operators planning for potential changes in demand and Covid-19 restrictions during the winter months ahead.
“Eliminating minimum delivery requirements is our latest offering to show our customers that Sysco is on a mission to make it easier to do business with us,” said Kevin Hourican, Sysco’s president and chief executive officer. “Combined with our value-added services and world-class sales team, we are helping restaurants—especially smaller, independent businesses—stay in business, better run their business and evolve their business to drive increased traffic, now and in a post-pandemic world.”
