Campaign advances Sysco’s efforts to help small foodservice businesses stay in business and encourages Americans to support local restaurants
HOUSTON, May 1, 2020 /3BL Media/ - Sysco Corporation (NYSE:SYY) announced today the launch of a new “Foodservice Doesn’t Brake for Adversity” campaign designed to help small foodservice businesses stay in business. The campaign will consist of strategically placed messages across multiple channels designed to encourage Americans to support their local restaurants and also highlights the resilience of all foodservice workers.
Right now, a lot of people could use extra help, and that is particularly true for the most vulnerable people among us. Recently, some Massachusetts and Rhode Island shelters and food banks have gotten a little help in a big way thanks to Amazon, Sysco, and the Patriots Foundation.
Then there are even more entrepreneurial restaurants and caterers—even chains including Panera and Big Boy—who also added an assortment of goods they had on hand (or they were able to secure it from their foodservice distributors) to sell directly to consumers. Assortments include alcohol, boxes and cans of ingredients, flour, meats, produce and yes, even toilet paper.
