SYGMA’s story began in January 1984 when senior officers of SYSCO Corporation started discussions for forming a new distribution company. Their vision was to establish an independent subsidiary of SYSCO Corporation that would specialize in service to restaurant chains.

SYSCO’s corporate structure ensures that the entrepreneurial spirit and drive is as strong in the parent company as in each of its subsidiary companies. That spirit – a combination of personal integrity, drive, creativity, and determination to benefit our partners – is our guiding philosophy and the key to our past success and continued growth.

SYGMA’s start-up team established values, strategies, systems, procedures, and an infrastructure before the first case of product was shipped in May of 1985 from SYGMA’s first distribution center in Oklahoma. In 1988, The SYGMA Network welcomed the addition of Sugar Foods and Food Service Specialists through SYSCO’s acquisition of CFS.

Over 25 years ago and millions of deliveries later, SYGMA is one of the largest foodservice distributors in the United States. Since the beginning, SYGMA has built a solid foundation on its entrepreneurial spirit and drive and focused its business on developing relationships with its restaurant partners to help them enhance the value of their brand.
