Sysco Corporation announced the grand opening of Sysco Allentown, a new 454,000 square foot, distribution center in Northampton, PA. The new location will bring nearly 250 career opportunities to the community and bring Sysco's service and solutions to the Lehigh Valley, Northeast PA, Poconos and Northern New Jersey. Sysco Allentown features a top-of-the-line culinary center for collaborating with local customers to test and develop menus.

Customers will also have access to Sysco Perks!, the company's free loyalty program. Qualifying members receive deliveries up to six days per week, exclusive offers and rewards, and up to $6,000 worth of restaurant solutions. The new facility will also expand the reach of the company's Sysco Your Way (SYW) program, providing more local restaurants in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton and Princeton University the flexibility they need to grow.

SYW provides late in the evening order cut-offs, daily deliveries, no order minimums and a dedicated sales and delivery team - all at no additional cost. It's the kind of service that one customer called "a game changer".
