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.

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.

Transportation is included with facility tour registration. Attendees can add the facility tour to their DSC experience by selecting it on the registration page*Note: this tour is open to distributors only and exhibitors are not eligible to attend.
