    I live in Minnesota and I've seen 4 different Sysco opco trucks on the same block. Sysco Minnesota at a papa murphys,Sysco Asian foods next door at a Asian buffet, Sysco western mn driving by and Sysco Lincoln across the street at Panda Express. Lincoln has taken over Panda Express in Minnesota from Sygma which I also see in town just later in the day at panera so I actually see 5!

    All this overlap but leave your truck idling too long you get written up...
    The Sygma truck at Panera is probably out of their KC warehouse. We had a guy here that came from Sygma who used to run up to MN, I think he said his route was mostly Panera.
    I can't believe they've left Asian Foods open. They had a warehouse here, when Sysco bought them they transferred all our Asian business to them we were beside ourselves with joy not having to go to another Chinese buffet. Then a few years later they closed the warehouse down because they were losing too much money and we took the business that they hadn't already lost back, couple of their drivers and a supervisor came over here as drivers after that

    I think Asian does pretty well up here. I know they are based out of St. Paul. I know sales reps for Sysco aren't allowed to sell to any Asian places there all for Asian foods.

    That may be their dough only. Here they do that themselves, Sygma handles the rest

    I've only ever seen Panera trucks at Panera around here lift gates and everything the trucks are pretty serious looking too refers and everything. I'll be on the look out to see if I see any Sygma trucks at Panera.

    Panera only distributes dough products with there own trucks and Sygma does everything else.
