IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lindora, one of the largest medically supervised weight loss and wellness companies in the country, announced today that it has partnered with Sysco Corporation (NYSE:SYY), the global leader in food distribution, to deliver all of Lindora’s products to its collection of Southern California clinics.
Partnering with Sysco allows us to manage just-in-time inventory for all of our Southern California clinics, as well as for future clinics that may arise anywhere in the country.
Will Righeimer, Lindora’s CEO, said that the move to Sysco was a strategic decision to align with a world-class partner and leverage their best practice in logistics as Lindora makes plans to expand. “Partnering with Sysco allows us to manage just-in-time inventory for all of our Southern California clinics, as well as for future clinics that may arise anywhere in the country.” Lindora currently sells over 100 nutritional and wellness products both in its clinics and online.
Lindora was purchased by Solis Capital Partners and Innovate Partners just a few years ago. A new leadership team was brought on shortly thereafter and has been rapidly evolving the business to meet the needs of their patients and an American population whose obesity problem is reaching epidemic proportions.
Since Righeimer and the new team took over, the company has driven two years of significant new patient growth, created an industry-first membership program, introduced more than 80 new on-trend products under their LindoraNutrition™ label, launched an exclusive line of fully prepared and ready-to-go, ketogenic meals called LindoraFresh™, and launched an entire line of supplements under their LindoraWellness™ brand.
Righeimer closed by saying, “This partnership allows us to tap into Sysco’s expertise and keeps us focused on what we do best – delivering the best possible weight loss and wellness outcomes for our patients.”
