Legendary Restaurant Brands Teams with Sysco for Next Stage of Growth

Multi-year deal foodservice distribution agreement to fuel Bennigan’s, Steak and Ale brands.

June 30, 2015 // Franchising.com // DALLAS – Following two recent announcements of significant expansion throughout California and Latin America, Legendary Restaurant Brands today executed a new global agreement with Sysco Corporation to supply food to its Bennigan’s and Steak and Ale concepts.

The multi-year agreement begins in July and encompasses participating Bennigan’s restaurants in the United States and across the globe, in addition to future locations of Bennigan’s, the Bennigan’s On the Fly fast-casual concept and the iconic Steak and Ale brand.

“Sysco sets the standard for quality food distribution all around the world, so we felt they were the perfect partner for our Legendary brands as we embark on the next phase of our growth,” said Legendary Restaurant Brands Chairman and CEO Paul Mangiamele. “As we continue the renaissance of Bennigan’s, and re-introduce Steak and Ale to its legions of loyal fans, Sysco will provide us with the products and service we need to deliver memorable dining experiences to every guest, every meal, every day.”

Now with more than 150 restaurants open or under contract worldwide, Bennigan’s is experiencing another year of strong growth while simultaneously redefining casual dining. The company has recently opened new franchise locations in Clarksburg, MD; Katy, TX; Santa Clara, CA; Tysons Corner, VA; Veracruz, Mexico; Larnaca, Cyprus; and Dubai, UAE.

Additional restaurants are planned for Arizona, California, Florida, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia; and internationally in Bahrain, Central America, Chile, Cyprus, Kuwait, Mexico, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia.
