Sysco is a global leader in selling, marketing and distributing food products to restaurants, healthcare and educational facilities, lodging establishments and other customers who prepare meals away from home. Its family of products also includes equipment and supplies for the foodservice and hospitality industries. The company operates 193 distribution facilities serving approximately 425,000 customers.
As part of the sweepstakes prize, Sysco brought famous Chef Robert Irvine and a camera crew to Pinedale on Thursday, November 20th to visit Kay, see Stockmanís restaurant and visit with employees, and have an afternoon reception for invited guests. A large turnout came for the celebration which included tasty appetizers and drinks. After some socializing, Chef Irvine got the attention of the crowd and asked what foods the patrons especially liked. Beef, chicken fried steak, prawns and other dishes were called out. Chef thanked the community for supporting the restaurant. He is noteworthy for his culinary talents and several food-related TV programs, including one called "Restaurant Impossible" where he goes into struggling restaurants and helps them with makeovers. Kay and Stockmanís are shining examples of proprietors who have spent years doing things right, but Chef couldnít resist to say he still had some suggestions to add to the menu and perhaps an interior paint color changeÖ He told the Kay fans to watch for some fun changes in the future. Later he went into another room to accommodate requests for autographs and photo ops.
A good time was had by all.
We hope Chef got Kay Pfisterer Bustonís autograph before he left.
