Is there.. What are the Sysco type places in NYC?
« on: March 02, 2011, 06:37:55 PM »
I have a chance to possibly open up a place in nyc, I dont live there, Ive visited but Im from ohio. We have tons of places we got our foods out Ohio Farmers, Sysco, etc etc..

I was curious with the traffic, do they have these kinda places for restaurants if so whats some of the names so I can start researching now before I get up there in a month.

If they do, when do they do all their delivering? Is this the kinda thing they do this at 4am? I cant imagine a truck being able to drive and unload during the day.

OR am I wrong.

Any nyc owners here? :) A little help on places I can get our food at. Whats the best companies.

Thanks!

I used to sell for US. Foods. The drivers were union, so they made way more then a starting commissioned salesmen. Part of the training was a 1 day ride along with the driver. This prevented any whining about why the drivers make more then you. In the cab at 4 a.m. and running food up and down a ramp on a trailer all day as fast as you could. The route I was on was downtown Metro. That driver could make that truck do any thing he wanted. Like he was driving a compact.

Anyway, if you have applied for any kind of new food service license, you will be knee deep in salesmen soon enough. :-D
