Since then, the family-owned business has grown into a multi-million dollar broadline distributor, servicing parts of a six state area, including OklahomaTexasArkansasLouisianaMississippi, and Alabama.

“We are excited to welcome Doerle and its rich, long history to the Sysco family,” stated Tom Bené, Sysco’s president and chief executive officer. “Doerle has a sterling reputation of providing the highest quality products, cultivating deep, long-term relationships with customers and suppliers and providing impeccable service. We believe these principles align with Sysco’s vision of being our customers’ most valued and trusted business partner.”

“As part of our strategic M & A plan, Sysco is focused on finding attractive growth opportunities which complement or expand the footprint of our core business,” continued Bené. “The acquisition of Doerle is a great fit for Sysco and reaffirms our commitment to creating value for our customers, associates and shareholders.”
