   How bad or good is Sysco Florida not a single reply
in six weeks.Cheney and Gordon Foods seem to be
cutting into their business,but hard to tell from the
outside.

Darn Right! We are finishing the year strong; up in cases, up in sales dollars and up in gross profit. We are looking to kick butt & take names.

Beware of what you see! Those accounts probably owe Sysco money and are forced to buy from Cheney

   Used to work for Sysco.Anything interesting happening in Sysco houses in Fla.?



THis past Monday, they let Joh Abreu, President of Sysco South Florida go.
I understand that also, the President of Sysco Riviera.  They have brought one woman to manage both Sysco Houses. 
John had been at Sysco sync he was 17 years old, he is in his 50s. Last years he beat a bout of cancer.
John F. Baugh and Harry Rosenthal, created a family company, with the idea of never letting anyone go. They are turning in their graves.

Sounds a lot like what's been happening at US Foods. Not necessarily in management, because those people seem to interchangeable, but in the sales force. I retired in May 2018 after 42 years with USF and its predecessor companies. There seemed to a concerted effort to force veteran reps (20 years or more) to leave or retire. I worked with some of the same people for almost my whole career. I think us "old guys" got in the way of the new mindless robot selling model that USF was going to. The emphasis became Scoop and Value-Added Services, not necessarily taking care of customers. "This is what we want you to sell, and this is how we want you to sell it" was the new way. 

20 reps were let go at my old division since the COVID pandemic hit. So, USF gets what they want. Almost all customers ordering online, and fewer reps handling more accounts.
