Sysco Boston LLC sells, markets and distributes food, equipment and supplies to restaurants and places such as Fenway Park, McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, R.I., Boston University, Boston College and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said Fred Casinelli, Sysco's president and chief operating officer.
