[JUNE 30, 2005]
Officials from the city of Lincoln, Logan
County Board, and the Lincoln and Logan County Development
Partnership officially finalized a deal Wednesday with Robert's
Sysco Food Service Inc. on a replacement facility for its food
service distribution operation. Robert's Sysco is a subsidiary of
SYSCO Corporation (NYSE: SYY).
The new facility will be located on a 52-acre lot at the northwest
corner of Connelley Road and Fifth Street in Lincoln. Construction
of the new facility is expected to begin in mid-July, with opening
scheduled for July 2006.
The closing culminates several months of negotiations between the
company, city, county, development partnership and several
landowners. An adjacent 50-plus acres will also soon be made
available for sale to other businesses looking for sites to expand
or relocate. Details of this community-controlled commerce park will
be provided when they become available.
