Sysco Corp, the Houston TX-based foodservice marketer and distributor, plans to open a broadline distribution “fold-out” facility in Fargo ND. The new company, which will be named Sysco Food Services of North Dakota Inc, is expected to be operational in spring 2004.

Twenty-year company veteran Mark T Lanctot, who is currently vice-president of business development at Sysco’s St Paul MN distribution facility, will become general manager of the North Dakota fold-out operation.

The warehouse and 12 acres of land that Sysco purchased for the new company are at the intersection of Interstate 29 and 12th Avenue in Fargo. The warehouse contains dry, cooler, and freezer storage areas as well as office space. The operation is the company’s 13th announced fold-out—a strategy first implemented in 1995.
