Facility Tour

(Sept. 14 from 8:00am–12:00pm. Buses load at 7:30am and depart at 8:00am)


The optional DSC facility tour is highly popular and an informative opportunity to explore and learn about different operational setups, equipment and efficiencies. This year’s tour includes two stops: Gordon Food Service in Plant City and Sanwa Food Group in Tampa near the convention center. Transportation is included with facility tour registration. 

This event is sold out. 

Gordon Food Service Plant City – Opened in 2010, the facility is located on a 158-acre site and includes 1,175,000 square feet, four temperature-controlled dock areas, and four temperature controlled selection areas, including ice cream.
Sanwa Food Group Tampa – Two facilities with shared resources, Sanwa Farmers’ Market (warehouse store configuration/cash & carry) and Sanwa Fresh (delivery operation). This unique hybrid foodservice/retail set-up provides shared distribution model efficiencies.
