    A lot of restaurants’ food just got a little less local.

    Just looked up some info on (privately held) GFS just because I see their trucks in the Short North area far more often than Sysco’s. From the looks of this map, the closest distribution center is in Springfield, and that it alone services most of Ohio. As a public company, looks like Sysco could stand to be a little leaner (but I guess it depends on its marketshare).

    Exactly my thought. Wonder whether any other enterprising distributors will pick up the slack?

    Actually it looks as though Sysco will still continue to distribute in Columbus, just not through a Columbus facility.

    This is totally off topic, but I never hear Sysco without thinking of Sisqo’s Shakedown on MTV, circa 2000.
