Sysco plant, Plympton seek peaceful coexistence
Enriched by Sysco facility, town hopes to preserve rural feel
In one part of Plympton lies 87 acres that officials hope to turn into conservation land. In another part is the 650,000-square-foot Sysco food distribution center scheduled to open in June. The two locations may seem like a jarring dichotomy, but in this town of fewer than 3,000 people, many are finding it easy to embrace both. Some are even hoping that revenue from the Sysco plant will finally give the town the push it needs to begin preserving its rural feel.
