Who we are
Sysco is the largest food business on the island of Ireland. What was started by the Geary family has now grown to a team of over 1,300 people delivering food solutions to thousands of customers every night. Our customers rely on us to help them grow their businesses with a range of over 10,000 fresh, frozen and ambient food products and non-food products.
Operating from a central Dublin location and seven regional centres, we guarantee next-day island-wide delivery; we are the only food business in the country capable of delivering on our customers’ expectations regardless of how remote your business location is.
It’s been nearly two decades since we began our journey as Classic Drinks – driven by a desire to pair great wine with top-class service for our customers.
And while so much has changed since then, we are still dedicated to supporting our customers in the hospitality sector whose passion for great service is recognised throughout the world.
We do this through our incredible curated range of drinks – one that’s made up of more than 700 wines and 1,200 spirits, beers and ciders, and is growing all the time.
We do it by building close, personal relationships with our global network of producers, connecting our customers here in Ireland with access to the very best the world has to offer.
We do it through our sales team, who share their unrivalled knowledge through staff training, menu creation, event planning, online ordering and after-sales care – all so our customers can deliver the very best for their guests.
Ultimately, we do it by putting the customer experience first in everything we do.
In 2019, we joined forces with Sysco – leveraging their global network and world-class technologies to provide a next-generation level of customer service. All while retaining our personal touch, our boots-on-the-ground relationships, and the same team who made us who we are today.
At Classic Drinks, we’ve brewed up a storm, distilled what we do to a fine art, and aged like a fine wine along the way.
That’s because it’s never been a job to us.
It’s quite simply been a joy to serve.
