Ground Breaking Ceremony – Fremont, CA

Alvin Langfield formed the Langfield Company in San Francisco, California in the 1930s as a frozen foods distributor. Albany Frosted Foods acquired a majority interest in it in 1967. The Langfield Company, under the leadership of Walter “Mid” O’Brien, merged with Sysco Corporation in 1970 and became known as Allied Langfield. In 1975, the company moved its operations from Oakland to a new 100,000 square-foot state of the art facility in Hayward, California. At the time, Allied Langfield had 50 employees. During the late 1970s, Glencoe Foods and Select Union Foods were acquired and in 1979 the company changed its name to Allied-Sysco. In the 1980s, Allied-Sysco experienced tremendous sales growth expanding to 6 separate warehouses. In 1991, Allied-Sysco transitioned to its current facility in Fremont, California operating out of a 500,000 square-foot facility where it stands today. In 1997, two separately owned Sysco operations merged. Avard-Sysco and Allied-Sysco merged to create Sysco Food Services of San Francisco, Inc. In 2001, to continue Sysco’s mission of helping our customers succeed, Sysco San Francisco built a separate facility in Pleasant Grove, California known as Sysco Sacramento. The goal was to better serve our customers in Northern California. 

Sysco San Francisco, Inc. is among the ten largest of the Corporation’s operating companies.
