Gov. Riley took part in a ceremony Tuesday morning for a company which will employ nearly one-thousand workers in the Wiregrass.
Texas-based Sysco Corporation is the nation's largest food service marketer and is located in Geneva.
Sysco foods will re-open the old Fleming Foods building which has sat idle for several years.
Sysco supplies food products to restaurants and convenience stores nationwide and company representatives say Geneva is a perfect fit.
Sysco is expected to employ 220 workers by the end of the year and within three years that number will grow to 800.
