Sysco ended its 2018 fiscal year with more than $1.4 billion in profits, up a whopping 25.2% last year, despite rising national operational costs. Although the food distributor only jumped one spot on the Fortune 500, the Houston, Texas-based company is anticipating further growth in 2019. In April, Sysco announced that it acquired California-based sister companies J&M Wholesale Meats and Imperio Foods, both of which focus on the Hispanic customer segment and had a combined $44 million in sales last year. Sysco had $58.7 billion in sales across 600,000 customer locations in 2018.
