Though Sysco has grown to become the largest foodservice distribution network in the world, we never forget our roots. Our local Sysco specialty companies and operating houses work closely with local farmers, ranchers and producers to provide our customers with the freshest products available. We continue to build on our local business initiatives to ensure the highest quality products and services are delivered efficiently at the value our customers expect from the industry leader.
About the Garden
This simple yet stunning site is located on the outbound Kennedy Expressway at the Diversey Avenue exit. Your sponsorship panel is highly visible from a distance as a well-manicured lawn leads up to it, and a grove of trees provide a beautiful background all year long.
100 gardens cover almost 150 acres of roadside landscapes on all major expressways leading in and out of Chicago
The Expressway Partnership Program
The Expressway Partnership Program turns dreary embankments into ribbons of green parkways weaving through the city. More than 100 gardens comprise the Program, covering almost 150 acres of roadside landscapes on all major expressways leading into and out of the city. Each garden is carefully planned using native shrubs, trees, and perennials that require fewer resources and are well adapted to the harsh roadside growing conditions. We work closely with professional landscape crews to provide plant care, weed control, mowing, and litter pickup from April through October to ensure our gardens always look their best!
