Last month, Sysco Corporation – the world’s leading foodservice distribution company – celebrated the groundbreaking of Sysco Arizona East, a 353,600-square-foot facility located in Mesa.
The $102 million investment is poised to bring 257 new jobs to the region, along with industry-leading wages (boasting double the per capita median income in Arizona), paid time off and comprehensive healthcare and retirement benefits.
“Our city has a talented workforce … and I appreciate [Sysco’s] commitment to offering job training and workforce development opportunities for Mesa and the East Valley,” said Mayor John Giles.
The under-construction facility is on track to be fully operational by Spring 2025.
